Star Ledger: Jerseyans spend their Saturday showing they care about Newark

Jerseyans spend their Saturday showing they care about Newark

Lameira was among more than 1,200 volunteers from across the state who gathered in Newark yesterday to help beautify the city’s schools and parks in the 10th annual Jersey Cares Day.

Volunteers from corporations, local organizations and communities worked together to paint, garden and clean 10 sites around the city. Among other projects, they organized classrooms at Ann Street School and planted flowers in Branch Brook Park.

“Newark is a city that’s growing, and we’re helping to catalyze all the changes that are happening,” said Brian Dean, Jersey Cares executive director.

If you missed the chance to volunteer with Jersey Cares yesterday, their website has a number of opportunities to serve in Essex county and in Newark, specifically.
