First Annual CitySquash Serves a Success!

CitySquash team members, family members, staff, and board fanned out into the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Manhattan for the first annual CitySquash Serves day of community service! 125 participants in total rolled up their sleeves across 7 service projects, including delivering meals to home-bound seniors, removing invasive plants along the Bronx River, walking dogs at an animal shelter, and packing lunches for Habitat for Humanity volunteers. Afterwords, groups reflected on their projects and impact before coming back together at Fordham University for a celebration. Many thanks to all of our community partners, including the Bronx River Alliance, Sean Casey Animal Rescue, Citymeals on Wheels, Habitat for Humanity NYC, Project Harmony, and more. See below for some picture from the memorable day!

Blackstone Volunteer Day at CitySquash Summer Camp

CitySquash students and an energetic group of volunteers from Blackstone braved the stormy weather for a fun afternoon of squash and enrichment activities at Fordham University. On the court, the group ran through a series of drills and games, with some CitySquashers giving pointers to the volunteers who were stepping onto the court for the very first time. Off the court, the group from Blackstone helped out in a variety of ways: art projects with the Elementary students, Spanish grammar and vocabulary with the Middle School students, and mock interviews for our seniors and 8th graders preparing to apply for college and boarding school this fall.

 

See below for some pictures from the day. Thank you again to Blackstone for all your support!
