Volunteers spent the day revitalizing and refreshing local schools including PS 38 M, PS 188 M, PS 124 M, and PS 171 M. Volunteers spent the day gardening, painting murals and cleaning out school storage areas.
Nearly 1,500 volunteers worked to revitalize more than 15 high-need public schools across all five boroughs in New York City while raising funds to support improving education in New York City and New York Cares’ year-round education projects.
