New York Cares Day Spring

Hands on New York Day (Photograph courtesy New York Cares)
Saturday April 20 2013 9:30 - 15:00

Be the change you wish to see and sign up for this day of service, which doubles as a benefit to raise money for the nonprofit’s programming, including its volunteer projects and annual winter coat drive. Approximately 4,000 New Yorkers will help improve ten miles of shoreline and 70 parks in all five boroughs by gardening, painting and repairing fences, fixing nature trails and, yes, paying for the opportunity. If you want a chance to choose where you’ll be working, gather some friends and sign up as a team (of ten to 75 people) by March 22; otherwise you’ll be assigned to a project in the borough of your choice, as long as you register on by April 12.
