NewNewYorkers is having a meetup!!

28 Aug

I’m very excited to announce the very first *HaNgOuT sEsH* of NewNewYorkers! Meet other readers of this blog — and give back to your new home city — by volunteering with us on New York Cares Day — Saturday, Oct. 17.

Hang out with Sarah and the gang on Oct. 17!

Hang out with Sarah and the gang on Oct. 17!

Visit our team page to sign up, and invite all your friends! It goes without saying that we’ll be going out afterward for some drinks and socializing! Not-so-new New Yorkers are welcome too!

What we’ll be doing: Along with 8,000 other New Yorkers, we’ll do things like paint murals and line games on school playgrounds, organize school libraries and plant flowers. I led several teams two years ago, and it was SO. MUCH. FUN.

If you are unable to be there Oct. 17, please consider donating. These funds will make possible 10,000 volunteer projects this year, such as one-on-one SAT tutoring for low-income children and resume prep for unemployed adults.

Feel free to e-mail me at with any questions. It’ll be a great chance to mingle with fellow newcomers and ask questions of those of us who’ve been here a while. (Yes, I’m bringing my very NYC-savvy friends as well!)
