Join KHCC for Yale Day and feel the impact your volunteerism will make on this campus serving 4,500 Bronx tikes, teens and families! 

KHCC provides resources to empower Bronx residents from cradle to career to advance education and well-being for a vibrant community. We achieve this in an environment that fosters academic milestones, literacy, mental health support, nutrition, technology, and the arts.

On Saturday, May 13, you will have options for how you would like to help KHCC. You may join a cooking class and/or arts and crafts with our Special Needs children (ages 6-18), our Middle School Program youth (ages 10-12), and/or also help beautify our gardens and corridors.

This is a family-friendly event, there are great playgrounds and gardens on the premises that need sprucing up, if you want to pack a lunch and eat in the garden together, we will provide drinks and dessert. 

Wear durable outdoors clothes for gardening or painting.
