On Saturday, October 18, 2014, AABANY’s Young Lawyer Committee took part in New York Cares Day Fall – New York City’s largest hands-on volunteer service day, which is dedicated to revitalizing the city’s public schools. Committee Chairs Amy Ngai and Gabriel Arce-Yee, and members Jessica Eng, Jessica Lam, Katherine Eng, Julie Geng, May Li, Rachel Yu, and Sophia Yoo used spray paint and paint brushes to apply a fresh coat to the perimeter fence of IS 230Q in Jackson Heights. At the end of the day, Principal Ronald Zirin remarked that he had never seen the fence look so good. Other projects at the school included gardening, removing old study materials, and painting murals.
Thank you to our YLC Chairs for organizing this important event as a way to give back to the community, and all those who made New York Cares Day possible.
