Service Opportunity: NYC Riverside Park Day of Service – April 7, 2018

Paulina Baltazar – March 27, 2018

On April 7, we will host our 7th Annual Deerfield Day of Service in partnership with Riverside Park Conservancy and Ocean Conservancy. This year, the Alumni Association is partnering with the Center for Service and Global Citizenship to bring Deerfield students, alumni, and families together for a coastal cleanup in New York City’s Riverside Park, followed by a debrief, lunch and informal networking with alumni, cool music and giveaways!

All volunteers will receive a Deerfield Day of Service long sleeve tee and aluminum water bottle on the morning of the service project.

The schedule is rain or shine, there’s no such thing as bad weather, only poor clothing choices. Students are strongly encouraged to bring a change of clothing and have proper footwear for hiking outdoors.

We will depart from campus at 7 am sharp on Saturday, April 7 and return at around 7 pm in the evening. Meals will be provided. This is a full day commitment and space is limited.

Interested students are encouraged to apply here.

Please note: Applications are due by 9 am this Friday, March 30. A roster will become available to accepted students by next Monday.

Questions, please stop by the CSGC or contact Mr. Walker.
