Many of our classmates took leadership roles with regard to the Yale Day of Service.
One classmate, Darcy Troy Pollock, kicked things off a bit early, with a project she spearheaded on May 2, when Yale alums joined forces with Big Sunday volunteers and P.S. Arts to create an arts fair for the students of Will Rogers Elementary, a Title One public school. Some 100 students enjoyed making sock puppets, painting rocks, creating mobiles, getting their faces painted and much more. It was a big boost for these children, who recently lost a beloved principal, and an incredibly fund day for all! (P.S. Arts ia a non-profit organization dedicated to improving children's lives by restoring arts education to underserved public schools.)
I would love to hear how people got involved on the Yale Day of Service.

I would love to hear about any projects that are being headed up by members of the Class of 1987.
