photoReminder – LL Cares is excited to announce our volunteer project for November! Cards can be backpacked to Emily Kim c/o Jane Kim 4-245.

Citymeals-on-Wheels raises private funds to ensure no homebound elderly New Yorker will ever go a day without food or human company. Citymeals-on-Wheels delivers thousands of handmade cards to homebound elderly New Yorkers, along with their nutritious meals.  Last year, Citymeals received over 60,000+ beautifully handmade cards, designed by children & adults.

This is a two-part community service activity for Lab students.
