Last week, a great group of volunteers sponsored a Free Arts NYC event at The Children’s Aid Society’s Milbank Center in Harlem for a “Build your Own Community” art project that helped under-served kids re-imagine their worlds as part of Good Deeds Day. Volunteers from NYC Service, DoSomething.org, JumpStart, Grow NYC and ABC/Disney's VoluntEARS worked with youth in Milbank’s after-school program bring their ideal communities to life by creating dioramas. “It was really fun! We had a fantastic time” said David Rosenthal, one of the volunteers who worked with the youth.

Good Deeds Day is an annual, global event that celebrates the good deeds of thousands who choose to improve the lives of others.
