Did you know April is National Volunteer Month? President Obama is proposing new investments for volunteering programs and a new study shows that volunteerism and civic participation are at a five year high – a civic awakening is happening around the country.
What are you doing this Saturday? In service to our community, the Manhattan Young Democrats and Brooklyn Young Democrats are teaming up to volunteer on New York Cares Spring Day – an annual effort to cleanup and revitalize our city parks and green spaces.
The focus this year is Hurricane Sandy relief and recovery. As New Yorkers face many challenges rebuilding their homes, communities and lives, we’re joining more than 4,000 volunteers to give our time and energy helping to restore beaches, parks, and green spaces around the city.
Time – 9:30 am to 3:30 pm
Site location – more details to come
In keeping with our tradition, a long day hard at work on service projects will be followed by well-deserved drinks! Hope to see you there!
