The Canadian Association of New York is entering a team into one of the biggest annual volunteer events in New York City – New York Cares Day on Saturday, October 20th! Last year, 65,000 New Yorkers made our city a better place by participating in New York Cares volunteer programs at 1,300 nonprofits and schools.

This year, CANY members will be able to join thousands of people for New York Cares Day for Schools.

New York Cares’ mission is to meet pressing community needs and a commitment to education. They believe that education and the state of a student’s learning environment are fundamental to the student’s development. Our contribution on New York Cares Day will be to help transform the spaces where students learn, in just 4 hours. Volunteer tasks vary from school to school, with revitalization projects such as painting classrooms, gardening and organizing.

If you are interested in helping CANY make NYC schools a better place, please sign up using the registration link above. Please sign up as soon as possible, as space is very limited. Registration is free, but CANY would also like to make a financial contribution to New York Cares to support their year-round, high impact, volunteer powered programs. We would love it if you contributed to CANY's donation (though it is not necessary to donate in order to participate!). If you would like to contribute, please click on one of the registration options to make a $10, $25 or $50 donation which the CANY Foundation will contribute to New York Cares.  All such donations are tax-deductible and will receive a tax receipt.

The general schedule for the day is as follows (exact schedule and location to be announced later):

9:30: Volunteers arrive for registration
10:00: Welcome and orientation
10:30: Start work
1:30: Start to clean up
2:00: Wrap up and closing

We hope you can join CANY's team on October 20th as we participate in New York Cares Day for Schools!
