8,000 volunteers will paint murals and classrooms, organize libraries, and brighten up playgrounds at more than 100 public schools. The work you'll put in is worth well over $1 million in service to the New York City public school system.
New York Cares Day is also an important fundraiser for New York Cares. Like a walk-a-thon, you'll ask family, friends, and coworkers to pledge donations in honor of your service. The money you raise for New York Cares Day will create more than 10,000 volunteer projects this year.
