The events of September 11, 2001 significantly impacted individuals and communities on a local and global scale. Just as the NYU and New York City communities came together on 9/11/01 in the spirit of service and reflection, we join others around the country by participating in a National Day of Service each September 11th.
On Friday, September 11th, 2015, NYU students, faculty, and staff will be working together on a beautification project at Morningside Park in Manhattan's West Harlem and Morningside Heights neighborhoods. The group will be departing from the Kimmel Center at 10:00 AM and will return to campus at approximately 3:00 PM. Please wear closed-toe shoes and comfortable clothing that is appropriate for painting and gardening work. All participants will be given a round-trip MetroCard for transportation to the park and a brown bag lunch to eat on site. We will be meeting on the 2nd floor of the Kimmel Center (at the top of the main staircase) to check in, and will depart for Morningside Park together.
To participate, please complete and submit your registration form by Friday, September 4th, at 5PM. Limited spaces are available and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about this year's 9/11 Day of Service project or NYU Service Programs.
This initiative is supported by NYU Service, the NYU Center for Student Activities, Leadership, and Service, Partnerships for Parks, the City Parks Foundation, and NYC Parks.
