Dedicated to rescuing perfectly good food that may otherwise be thrown out, this NYC organization helps to support the 1.4 million New Yorkers living in poverty. You and the little ones can help coordinate a food drive or help run a virtual drive, and older kids can join a volunteer team (must be 15 and older to volunteer at City Harvest offices and 18 or older to participate in other volunteer opportunities).
Here's your one-stop shop for volunteer opportunities for kids in NYC! There are plenty of fantastic charitable organizations (both local and national) that need your help year-round and during the holidays, and a little bit of your time goes a long way. The picks on our list welcome kids as volunteers, and the act of volunteering time will help teach your family about the spirit of giving.
