NY Cares sponsors two events each year. Volunteers in the Fall help clean up and pain murals in the city’s schools. In the Spring it’s clean-up time. Over 5,000 volunteers from all walks of life come out to help. This year, in Forest Park, Queens, NY, about 200 people came to clean up around the carousel area. The weather was great, spirits were high and the park got a much needed make-over.
