White Plains Helping Hands is looking for hard working and caring high school students. Students bring their unique talents and interests to the club and perform community service projects in and around the City of White Plains. The club will engage in a range of service activities; from organizing food and toy drives to spending time with children and the elderly in our community.
GROWING WHITE PLAINS COMMUNITY AGRICULTURE PROJECT
The White Plains Youth Bureau and the Recreation and Parks Department have opened a new community agriculture project on the grounds of New York Hospital, adjacent to the existing community garden. Featuring a large plot of excellent fenced growing land, where vegetables, herbs and flowers, will be harvested using organic methods, for donation to the White Plains food pantry for distribution. The garden is maintained and cared for by community residents.
Garden members have the opportunity to learn about gardening, engage in healthy activities with their families, and contribute to this wonderful extension of the concept of White Plains Cares by helping provide healthy food to our neighbors in need.
