October 23rd is New York Cares Day, when 7,000 volunteers will be sent to all 5 boroughs to paint murals and classrooms, organize libraries, and brighten up playgrounds at 100 public schools. The work done on this one day will be worth $1 million in service to the New York City public school system. Have you signed up yet? There’s still time! If you’d like to volunteer, go to the New York Cares office (214 West 29th Street, between 7th and 8th Avenues) by 8:30 a.m. on Saturday the 23rd to register and take a bus to a site in need of volunteers. The bus will return to the office by 4:00 p.m. If you are looking to join a specific team, please contact your team leader for details. You will be required to pay the $20 registration fee when you arrive.
There’s still room on Team Give and Get NYC, who will be out in Bushwick, Brooklyn painting line games and murals and lots of other fun things!
