It’s time to put down your new iPhone and pick up a paintbrush, because on October 19, the CCAR need you to brighten up the lives of children as part of Paint a School Day.

October 19. Will you be there to paint the town and children’s lives a little bit brighter?

The Center for Community Action and Research (CCAR) is looking for 80 ready and willing Pace students to volunteer for Paint a School Day, NYC’s largest hands-on volunteer day, on Saturday, October 19. Volunteers will spend the day painting colorful murals, refreshing classrooms, planting flowers, and brightening up playgrounds at local public schools.

Advanced registration is required! NYC students should register here or e-mail with your name and phone number. Interested PLV students can register here or e-mail with your name and phone number.

NYC students will meet in the lobby of One Pace Plaza and transportation and lunch will be provided. The hours are approximately 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. For PLV students, busing will also be provided. Please wear clothing and shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty/getting paint on.
