More than 100 students, faculty, and staff from NYUCD participated in the annual Live United Bridge Walk in October. The event was conducted as part of the larger United Way campaign. The all-volunteer group was spearheaded by Alexis Cohen, '12, Student Council President, and Josephine Chang, '11, Community Service Club President, and mentored by Ms. Phyllis Stone, Director of Student Affairs.
The volunteers collected $600 to raise awareness of the need to bridge the gaps that exist in education, income, and health in New York City. "The fact that our turnout was so impressive is a tribute to the concern for these issues that exists at NYUCD," said Ms. Stone.
Added Ms. Chang, "I get involved in these events because I care about the community and want to help raise awareness and encourage others to get involved in the hope of making a difference."
