The money raised from this event goes toward Lehman L.I.F.E’s March 2019 trip to Humacao, Puerto Rico to help build and supply an after school program and cover the cost of transportation for the students on this service project. The Lehman L.I.F.E. Service learning opportunities are designed to raise students’ awareness of issues and needs existing in local and global communities, and to foster effective action through volunteer work. The cycle of service continues and expands as students bring their experiences back to benefit their own communities, in the Bronx and the greater New York City area. Lehman L.I.F.E. gives students from Bronx and NYC-area the opportunity to make a difference in the world that they never thought possible.
