(4/8) Register to Join the JETAANY Team for Hands on New York Day

JETAANY is organizing its first-ever team to participate in the annual Hands on New York Day, organized by New York Cares.

“Join New York Cares and 5,000 volunteers to make our city’s parks and gardens cleaner, greener, and ready for summer on Saturday, April 16. Hands On New York Day is an incredible day of service. Volunteers will rake and clean debris, plant, mulch, paint fences and benches, and more. It’s a great day out, and great way to make the Big Apple shine.”

To register and join the team:

Simply go to the JETAANY Team Page and click on the “Join Our Team” link. There will be a $20 registration fee which goes towards all of the materials and supplies used to help clean up New York City on this day. Invite friends, family and co-workers. The more helping hands the better!

The last day to sign up is Friday, April 8, 2011. So, be sure to register on the website soon!
