This morning City Year New York kicked off our LICense to Serve Service Day in Long Island City, Queens at The Dutch Kills School Park. Over 200 volunteers including teams of LIC Young Heroes and some of our Corps Members started the morning with some PT and heard from City Year New York Board Member and New York City Councilman Eric Gioia who thanked all of the volunteers for their hard work and reminded them that they are helping to change things in their neighborhood for the better.

After the opening ceremony the volunteers fanned out over the neighborhood and began painting murals, making stepping stones and doing some gardening around PS 112 and MS 204.
