Project Renewal is a non-profit organization located in New York City whose mission is to provide chronically homeless men and women with the tools needed to move off the streets and into health, homes and jobs. We need volunteers to help clean out the yard at one of our homeless men's shelters in the East Village so shelter residents can use the yard for recreation.
The shelter is located at 8 East 3rd Street (between Bowery and 2nd Ave), and we will be meeting at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 21st. We will be doing some basic sweeping and cleaning, as well as refinishing benches in the yard, and perhaps some planting, all of which shouldn't take more than 2-3 hours. The shelter is conveniently located in the East Village, so we can even reward ourselves with brunch or a drink afterwards if folks are interested.
Please contact Emily Brown at [address removed] if you're interested in helping out. Thanks and hope to see you on the 21st!
