Talent included JR Martinez, Cornelius Smith, Chrishell Stause, Melissa Claire Egan, Daphnee Duplaix, Denise Vasi, Adam Mayfield, Thorsten Kaye, Jason Tam, Bree Williamson, John Brotherton and Melissa Archer. Participants in the day exceeded PS 129’s expectations. The public school, located in West Harlem, New York, was blown away by the amazing work of the volunteers. Teams of fans, talent and staff made over the cafeteria with Healthy Food murals, decorated the hallways with inspiring designs, painted the library with literacy murals, painted the gym with a New York Cityscape and painted over 30 panel murals to be hung around the school. Thank you to all who participated in the day – it was a great experience.
