The staff at Goldstein Hall donated their time on Friday, October 20, 2017 for a volunteer community service event through Habitat for Humanity New York City’s A Brush with Kind program. The group worked hard to repaint and revitalize the community center located at the Baruch Houses complex, which is the largest NYCHA development in Manhattan. The program consists of multi-day projects of painting, planting, or doing light “fix-up” work in all five boroughs at community centers, which have limited funds to pay for refurbishments. We congratulate Habitat for Humanity NYC for its ongoing efforts to better the lives of those that need it the most.
Brush with Kindness is a natural extension of Habitat NYC’s housing ministry, allowing our organization to ensure overall neighborhood revitalization and that low-income and very low-income New Yorkers who might not qualify for homeownership have beautiful, well-maintained homes and communities, whether “home” be public housing, a shelter or a rented apartment.
