AIMU Volunteer Day

Wednesday 28 August 2024, 09:15am - 04:30pm


AIMU is into our 10th year of organizing a Volunteer Day with the New York Harbor School on Governors Island. This annual event has proven to be fun and popular – in addition to helping with a worthwhile cause. AIMU volunteers will assist the NYHS with various projects to help get the school and its facilities ready for the upcoming school year, while enjoying camaraderie and a beautiful day outdoors on historic Governors Island.
