Every October the New York Cares organization sends thousands of volunteers to do community service by sprucing up public schools.

This year 110 public schools from all five boroughs participated in the cleanup performed by over 7,000 volunteers on Saturday, October 23.

Meghan Moloney, coordinator from New York Cares said, “It’s part of a large day of service. It’s a big day of commitment to public schools to make sure that they’re bright, clean and great for the kids.
