Public Allies MLK Day of Service

On February 19, 2024, Executive Director Andres Fernandez and Chicago Program Officer Raja Banerjee joined Public Allies staff and their AmeriCorps members as they provided service to Newberry Elementary School, alongside school staff members and public volunteers.  They engaged in painting projects beautifying the school, helped set up furniture for a new staff lounge, and made Blessing Bags for the less fortunate.  The volunteers were joined by Assistant Principal Megan Clendening, who told them how much their actions will benefit the school and its operations.
