Cares Day for Schools

New York Cares Day for Schools (Cares Day):

October 19, 2019

Cares Day is your opportunity to improve the educational environment for thousands of public school students across the 5 boroughs! On this day, you’ll work with a community of dedicated volunteers to paint classrooms, build gardens, revitalize classroom spaces and more, all to make sure that students have the best learning environment possible.  

Volunteer sign-up begins in September. 

Right now, you can support this vital day of service by starting a fundraising campaign. Every dollar you help raise will help with supplies to revitalize Cares Day schools as well as support our education programming in over 200 schools year-round. You can raise funds as an individual or a team, so feel free to spread the word by sharing our fundraising page on social media. 

Stay tuned for more updates coming soon!
