It’s the time of year when many New Yorkers count their blessings and want to give something back in return—and all eight million of us could use a helping hand now and then! Many food banks, shelters, hunger foundations and dozens of other organizations need volunteers to help everyone celebrate the holidays this year. We rounded up some incredible holiday volunteer opportunities in NYC that give back to the community, but be sure to sign up fast—slots often fill up for Thanksgiving and Christmas weeks ahead of time. Just remember—volunteers are needed year round!
