Highbridge Park Cleanup: Chesed in Action

On August 27, 2021, as part of orientation-related chesed activities connected to the return to campus, student volunteers from Wilf and Beren campuses brought some TLC to Washington Height’s Highbridge Park.

Armed with rakes, garbage bags and enthusiasm to spare, the group joined forces with Northern Manhattan Division of the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation in the first of three park clean-ups scheduled for the fall semester.

New York State Assemblywoman Carmen de La Rosa was on hand, commending the group for its commitment to the community and the environment.
