Rising Point Service Day 04/19

On a beautiful Saturday morning, City Year New York held a Community service day in The Bronx at Hunt’s Point.

We were joined by external volunteers from: Monroe and Drew Colleges, Bronx Guild H.S. and the Young Heroes from City Year Philadelphia.

NYC councilmember Maria del Carmen Arroyo, a longtime friend and supporter came out for the opening ceremony and got all of the volunteers pumped up for a day service. We also were excited to work with service partners from: NYC PAL, MS 302, PS 333/335, Wishing Well Garden, Bronx Regional HS, Bananna Kelly HS and the NYC Parks Department.

The day wrapped up at 3PM and all of the participants enjoyed a Community BBQ with food donated by Trader Joe’s.
