Fort Greene Schools to Host New York Cares Day

Volunteers wanted to help spruce up local educational institutions.

J.H.S. 265, P.S. 369 and P.S. 67 in Fort Greene will help kick-off the 21st annual New York Cares Day Fall with an opportunity for volunteers to come out and help enhance school amenities. 

The local schools join dozens of others across the five boroughs that volunteers will spruce up.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., participants will paint murals on playgrounds and throughout indoor hallways, plant bulbs, update school yards with fresh line games, organize classrooms and lead sports clinics for students to participate in. 

Additional sites across Brooklyn will also see improvements, including P.S. 243, P.S. 81, M.S. 354, P.S. 289, P.S. 137, P.S. 616, P.S. 59, P.S. 3, P.S. 734 and P.S. 21 in Bed-Stuy.

P.S. 12 in Bed-Stuy will receive special attention, including a visit from Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, New York City School’s Chancellor Dennis Walcott and New York Cares Executive Director Gary Bagley, who will be joined by 100 volunteers.

Can someone explan to me why all the construction and beautification projects in Clinton Hill are done by PAID staffers but the same work in and around Fort Greene projects is done by "VOLUNTEERS"? The Myrtle Avenue Revitilization Project (MARP) is a fraud. The hustlers at MARP seem to think that Myrtle Avenue and adjacent environs only includes that portion of Myrtle Avenue that runs thru Clinton Hill and to hell with the part of Myrtle Avenue that runs thru Fort Greene. Where is the change we voted for?
