A dozen NYUCD students and six fellow students recruited from the UMDNJ Dental School joined
thousands of volunteers in October to revitalize more than 100 New York City public schools during the 15th Annual New York Cares Day, New York’s largest day of volunteer service. They added bright new line games to playgrounds, painted murals and classrooms,
re-organized storage closets and much more.
According to Dmitry Baron, Class of 2009, who organized the NYUCD contingent, “It was an amazing day. The work we and the other volunteers did will have a lasting impact, and will provide thousands of school children with cleaner, safer and more stimulating environments in which to learn and grow.”
