This past weekend was the most rainy and depressing weekend in NYC in a long time. There was not a minute of sunshine and it absolutely poured rain for 99.9 percent of the time. That said, we had committed to volunteer with NYC Parks doing a park cleanup on 114th Street at Thomas Jefferson Park and we did not want to cancel just because it was raining. Despite the bad weather, the four of us had a great afternoon and loved giving back to the parks. I hope to do this more often — they need all the help that they can get.
I am looking to do additional volunteer work with NYC Parks, as well as with Central Park Conservancy. If anyone wants to join me, let me know! They make all the parks so beautiful and bring so much joy, that I want to give back.
