This past spring, a group of dedicated volunteers from Perry Capital spent a Saturday morning and afternoon exploring the American Museum of Natural History with children from a local shelter.
After an introductory ice breaker, the kids and volunteers paired up for an energetic scavenger hunt that took them from the famous Hall of Dinosaurs, through the Hall of Ocean Life, past the birds of New York State, and back again. Once points were tallied and a winner declared, the whole group enjoyed lunch at a nearby pizzeria, complete with an awards ceremony!
New York Cares is proud to partner with Perry Capital, and we look forward to continuing our work together to make New York City a better place to live for all its residents.
Deutsche Bank has supported the work of New York Cares both financially and through the power of its employee volunteers for an incredible 15 years – and this year has been no exception.
Since March, Deutsche Bank volunteers have already participated in five days of service through New York Cares, including a painting and revitalization project (at The Hetrick-Martin Institute, home of Harvey Milk High School), two projects to beautify our city's parks (at East River Park and Fort Tryon Park), and a children's recreation project, where Deutsche's "I Have a Dream" summer high school interns took children from P.S. 140 M to a fun-filled dance class at a Manhattan dance studio.
Plus, Deutsche Bank volunteers came out in force on Hands On New York Day, when a team of more than 60 volunteers helped to spruce up a community garden. Deutsche Bank continues to prove its commitment to volunteerism year after year, and we look forward to more wonderful projects this year and in years to come!
Kirkland and Ellis
When a group of enthusiastic employees from Kirkland & Ellis first volunteered with New York Cares in the summer of 2006, we knew it wouldn't be the last time we saw them – and as predicted, Kirkland & Ellis has been a steadfast supporter of New York Cares and a participant in our Customized Corporate Service program ever since.
This past summer, summer associates from the firm gave back through two projects that benefited P.S. 63 M on the Lower East Side: one group of 25 participated in a day of reading and crafts with fourth grade students, while the other group helped to brighten and beautify the school grounds by adding line games and a United States map to the school yard and planting a flower and vegetable garden outside, which will be maintained by the fourth grade students this year.
Thank you to our friends at Kirkland & Ellis for another fantastic summer day of service and year of partnership!
