Day of Action for New York: Sunday, November 18th, All Day

The Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) are taking action to support our communities in New York, by bringing people and organizations together on November 18th for a Day of Action for New York.  The organization is seeking to mobilize 1,000 people to make a meaningful difference in an area hard hit by Sandy.  Volunteers will spend a day volunteering either on Staten Island, the Rockaways, or Long Beach.  The Clinton Foundation will provide transportation to and from the service site, presumably departing from meeting points in Manhattan. 

We are currently organizing a Barnard College Team to participate in the Day of Action for New York.  If you are interested in joining the Barnard College Team, please complete this internal registration form.  Due to overwhelming interest, the Clinton Foundation has closed registration for the event but we should have a few more slots available for Barnard volunteers.

More details about the project will be available in the coming days.  Please feel free to contact Valerie Chow, Associate Director, Civic Engagement and Experiential Learning, at with any questions.

Please consider giving back to our community by helping with the relief effort!
