This Saturday was College Town Service Day at Cadman Plaza Park. Over 90 students from 9 local colleges and the local dorms at the St. George came out to beautify the park. With organizational help and materials from the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership and Partnership for Parks, we removed close to 300 bags of leaves and debris, filled the Parks Department garbage truck twice and put a fresh coat of paint around the gardens south of the turf. It was one of our most successful cleanup days yet!
Thanks to Berkeley College, Brooklyn Law School, CityTech, Empire State College, LIU-Brooklyn, NYU-Poly, Pratt Institute. St. Francis College, St. Joseph’s College, and Educational Housing Services for all of their work as well as Au Bon Pain for donating lunch to our volunteers!
