In the early morning of Sunday, August 19th, when the rest of the city was still quiet asleep, 7 generous CMB gents & 4 kind CMB ladies set off to Harlem for New York’s first Coffee Meets Charity event. Their mission? Help New York City cut energy usage and lower greenhouse emissions by painting a reflective surface to a building roof.
Hours of arduous labor was quickly rewarded with fun conversations, lots of laughs, and a great sense of satisfaction (and for some, also a rekindled sense of responsibility). After a delicious lunch provided by NYC Cool Roofs, the good-hearted CMBers parted their ways, promising to connect again before the end of the month at CMB’s Summer Rooftop Party.
Thanks everyone for making this such an amazing event!
