Just wanted to pass along some info that I received from The Union Square Partnership (http://www.unionsquarenyc.org/) this week. There are 2 great opportunities to volunteer in the area this weekend.
"It's My Park Day", Saturday, Oct 20th, 10am-1pm. A chance to spend a few hours planting spring bulbs (5000 of them), mulching, and otherwise beautifying Union Square Park. All you need to do is bring yourself, all equipment is provided, great for kids too. Volunteers will meet at The George Washington Statue at 10 am.. RSVP by Thursday at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"New York Cares Day", Saturday, Oct 20th, 9:30am-3:30pm. Join the Con Edison Team to clean and paint a brighter future at the Washington Irving High School. To register with the company team, go to http://www.newyorkcaresday.org/, click on the “Register Here” link, select “Join a Team,” then choose “Con Edison” from the drop-down menu.
It should be a beautiful day!
