“This is an opportunity for all members of the New Rochelle community to come together in the spirit of unity, determination and remembrance,” said New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson. “Whether you are making literacy kits for underprivileged children, engaging with senior citizens, helping to restore the Boys & Girls Club, or volunteering for the 5th Annual New Rochelle Street Fair, we can all do our part to build a stronger community in which everybody counts.”
Last year more than 1,300 local volunteers contributed back over 2000 hours in remembrance of 9/11. For more information and to register, please visit http://volunteernewyork.org/newrochelle
