Speaking to the New York Daily News Ivonne Lopez, Duffield’s director of early childhood programs said, “She has started her community service today. Today she is doing clerical work. She is completing some of the clearances that we need. And she will be here pretty much all day.”

"She got here super early,” Lopez continued. “I don't know exact time but she was here early.” Lopez also revealed that the actress will soon be interacting with the children in their classrooms, but she doesn't expect them to recognise the Mean Girls star.

"They know she's a volunteer. They're very small so she's just a regular person to them,” Lopez added.“We're a nonprofit organization. We celebrate the strength of the human spirit, and this is a young person who needs to get something done. And we will do what we need to do to support that.”
