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.
The holiday season brings cheer and merriment, but it’s also a time to count blessings and reflect on what matters most. As we all enjoy the bounty of the season, it’s a time to think about giving back too. Volunteering is important any time of year, but some organizations experience increased demand for services over the holidays as they seek to help those in need around the city. There are many Thanksgiving and holiday volunteer opportunities in NYC, and you can sign up to make a difference. Even small actions count, and anything from sorting and delivering meals to helping out at a pet shelter can help during the holiday season. These organizations offer services that are especially important during the holidays, and extra hands are always welcome. But remember — help is needed throughout the year, so consider adding a regular volunteer shift to your schedule after helping out this Thanksgiving or Christmas.
