Second Annual Day of Impact

  • Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island (map)

Join fellow architects and design professionals during the fifth annual Archtober on Saturday, October 17th in making an impact in our boroughs, through AFHny’s annual city-wide service day! The service day event will be preceded by a kick-off party, Night of Impact, on October 16th!

Participants will collaborate with some of New York City’s best volunteer-based organizations by getting hands-on with painting, planting, and rebuilding projects, all of which will improve our neighborhoods on both physical and social levels.

Day of Impact will connect over one hundred designers with some of the city's leading non-profit organizations. This event will consist of one day service projects at eight sites and across our boroughs.

Presented in association with Archtober, Architecture and Design Month New York City, October 2015.
