NYCSHP Goes Back to School in the Bronx.

On Saturday October 15, 2011, about 25 NYCSHP members, students, family and friends met at PS 47 John Randolph Elementary School in the Parkchester section of the Bronx.  No, it wasn’t for detention but for New York Cares Day.  We spent the day painting (murals, fence, stairs risers, baseboards, and a bench outside the office) as well as some outdoor clean up and planting bulbs for the spring.   We were joined by a group from NYU Law School so we got to share with them our experiences, jobs  and pizza.

New York Cares Day is a community service event, across NY City in the public schools.  Groups of volunteers (nearly 7,000) work to help paint, organize, clean up in the public schools.  It’s organized by New York Cares, a volunteer organization that coordinates, and runs with volunteers 1200 programs of all types.   NYCSHP has participated in New York Cares Day for the last 3 years.  It’s Good, Clean, Fun.  Check out our pictures and get ready to sign up next year.

There are some additional pictures on the school website. http://publicschool47.com/events/fall2011.html.  It might look a little familiar to some because NYCSHP helped paint some murals and a hallway in 2009.
