National Volunteer Week 2011: Roll Up Your Sleeves and Swish

Give A Swish with tag

This National Volunteer Week, Swishers in NYC cleared out their pantries, closets, heads and spirits for the 1st Annual Swish Spring Cleaning Day – a contribution drive to benefit Sylvia’s Place, a NYC-based emergency overnight shelter for LGBTQ youth that provides hot meals, clothing, showers, case management, physical and mental health medical services and court advocacy. Dozens of pounds of toothpaste, new socks and underwear, soap and other basic needs items were collected.  Thank you to all of the volunteers who donated a few hours of their time, and to our NYC sponsors East of Eighth and New London Pharmacy.
