If you have a car, this organization, which feeds 18,000 homebound elderly New Yorkers annually, is ready to put you into action. As always, the organization will need as many hands as possible during holiday season, so be sure to sign up for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s opportunities, and it'll be in touch.
Recent events at home and abroad have New Yorkers counting their blessings and reflecting on what matters most. New Yorkers may be a testy bunch, but we help each other out when it counts. Help is always needed somewhere, and there are plenty of ways you can volunteer to make a difference. As the seasons change and talk turns to Thanksgiving and Christmas, consider signing up for holiday volunteer opportunities in NYC.
It may be overwhelming to think about where to start, but even small actions can make a big difference. Volunteering is important any time of year — anything from meal delivery or building projects to distribution of donations, mentoring or helping out at pet shelters — but some organizations experience increased demand for services over the holidays. Here is a list of organizations that offer important services during the holidays. It’s a great place to start, but remember that help is needed throughout the year, not just the holidays, so consider adding a regular volunteer shift to your routine.
