The Credit Suisse East Harlem community service day was by far one of the most fun and inspiring days I have had at City Year. It’s very empowering to realize myself and other corps members lead projects that totally transformed a disgusting overgrown courtyard into a beautiful place where residents can lounge, hang out and play in this summer. Our volunteers re-landscaped the gardens, created some amazing benches and even fixed a broken jungle gym! Some other service that went on also included mural painting, bookshelf building, and blacktop painting. The most gratifying part was seeing the look on the local residents faces in excitement. Overall it was a very powerful and inspiring day!
Yours in service,
