Thank you for helping the NYJL go Around the Community, Around the Clock!
We did it!! Thank you to all of the NYJL volunteers and friends – more than 400 in total – who worked Around the Community, Around the Clock from Friday, October 14 at 9:00 a.m. until Wednesday, October 19 at 6:00 a.m.!
We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our 115th anniversary of community service to New York City than by giving 115 continuous hours!
In total, over 400 volunteers participated in almost 1,500 hours of total service donated! Participants included NYJL volunteers of all ages, community members, students and more.
And we did a little bit of everything. From early morning volunteering at 4 a.m. to man the bracelet and temporary tattoo table for the avon39 walk, to cheering on others walking 39 miles and motivating them to end Breast Cancer to organizing the art supply closet and helping students at the Stanley Isaacs Center to the littlest volunteers decorating food delivery bags for the Thanksgiving holiday to provide a little extra cheer for God’s Love We Deliver clients.
Altogether we worked with 29 different community partners on 62 different activities! Here’s to the next 115!!!
