|Happy Friday Inhabitants!
If you’ve been enjoying all of the wonderful architectural activities that Archtober has to offer this month, why not show your appreciation by helping out some communities that could really use it? This Saturday, October 25th, Architecture for Humanity‘s New York chapter will be hosting Day of Impact 2014, a chance for volunteers to put in some sweat equity to rebuild and revamp areas of the city that are in need. Though the registration date has technically passed, there are still a few spots left to participate, so sign up here and make a difference!
