Painting a Public School in the Bronx
June 10, 2006Free
Helping Hands will be going to the Bronx on Saturday, June 10 to help paint a public middle school there.
We partner with Publicolor, a nonprofit that runs a youth empowerment program. We’ll be paired up with young students to help paint their school.
It’s a really fun way to spend a Saturday: painting, working with kids, and getting to know some other young professionals in the city.
We’re meeting at 9 a.m. at the info booth in the middle of Grand Central Terminal (at the clock) and taking the subway up together. We’ll be done around 3 p.m., but if you need to leave earlier, that’s OK.
Please sign up if you can make it, and feel free to get other friends or co-workers sign up as well. Make sure to wear old clothes (trust me, you’re probably going to get some paint on them) and bring a few bucks to cover lunch for yourself and one student.
