New York Cares (http://www.nycares.org) is looking for 8,000 volunteers to help paint a brighter future for New York City students. Join us for a day of good, clean fun, revitalizing more than 100 public schools and raising critical funds to support New York Cares. Find out how great it feels to help give thousands of children cleaner, safer and more stimulating environments in which to learn and grow.
On New York Cares Day, we'll paint hundreds of colorful murals; add bright new line games to playgrounds; organize school libraries; plant flowers; and perform other vital tasks to create great learning environments for students. These tasks will directly impact over 88,000 NYC public school students.
New York Cares Day is also an important fundraiser for New York Cares. Like a walk-a-thon, we encourage volunteers to ask family, friends and co-workers to pledge donations in honor of the service they perform that day. Last year, New York Cares touched the lives of nearly 400,000 New Yorkers in need, reading with children, serving food to the hungry, distributing coats and holiday gifts to those who would otherwise go without, and so much more. Our work would not be possible without financial support.
