Be Cool. Paint a School! (NYC)

News Story

One of New York City’s finest beautification projects is open to Pace students on October 22.

The biggest and most popular service event of the fall semester is back! Each year, Pace University's Center for Community Action and Research brings teams of Pace students together to participate in the city-wide New York Cares Day Fall, where we visit a local school and apply quite a bit of paint.

We create murals, beautify classrooms, and clean up gardens, all in support of creating a lively and vibrant educational environment in New York City. Paint a School Day, both fun and for a great cause, is a fan favorite.

This year’s Paint a School Day will be held on Saturday, October 22, from 8:30 a.m.–2:00 p.m. Spots fill up quickly, so be sure to reserve yours today by e-mailing
