Despite the harsh summer heat, nearly two dozen volunteers from New York Life came out to Harlem on June 20th to beautify space at the Children’s Aid Society’s Frederick Douglass Center. Equipped with bright paint, artistic skill and an energetic mood, their efforts produced an uplifting mural in the center’s playground. Children’s Aid youth, parents and community members can view the mural as a beautiful reminder to always reach for the stars.

Designed by Children’s Aid Associates Council member Nathaniel Soria, the mural touches on themes of community, education and mentoring. New York Life is a long-time supporter of The Children’s Aid Society and their services are greatly appreciated.
