YPG CARES: New York Cares Day for Schools 2016
Young to Publishing has participated in NYCares Day for Schools every fall for many years. This is a great opportunity to dip your toe in the wonderful world of volunteering here in New York City. NYCares Day will take place on Saturday, October 22nd. This year we are paired with a great school in Astoria that is convenient to multiple train lines and is across the street from the Museum of the Moving Image—perfect for making a day of it!
Our World Neighborhood Charter Middle School
(PS706Q) 36-12 35th Avenue
Astoria, Queens 11103
R Train at Steinway Street or N Train at 36th Avenue
Volunteers will be working on either painting or gardening projects at this location, so wear something you don’t mind getting dirty! You can expect to arrive at the school a little after 9 am and be there until about 2pm. We also usually get a very cool free T-shirt with a fun NYCares Day design.
Volunteers are required to sign up with our group on the NYCares website. The deadline for signing up is October 10th. While fundraising is not required, it would be great if we could reach our modest fundraising goal of $500 for our group. (We’re already halfway there!)
Team Name: Young to Publishing Group
Contact: Paige Carlson (firstname.lastname@example.org) will be emailing updated information to volunteers as the event approaches.
