Wet cleanup
Despite rainy weather, about 200 high school volunteers spent the day cleaning up the streets of Chinatown Sunday. As part of Chinatown Youth Initiatives’ “Make Change Count” programming, the cleanup featured 15 teams of volunteers with trashcans, brooms, tongs, and dustpans helping to beautify the neighborhood. The weekend included community oriented workshops and discussions at N.Y.U.’s Silver Center on Saturday, and culminated with the Sunday event.
