Where to volunteer in NYC

It’s time to volunteer, NYC! Give back to the city by getting involved in environmental issues or helping the homeless.

Are you a do-gooder that wants to volunteer? NYC has plenty of organizations that need an extra set of helping hands. Whether your concern is for environmental issues, the city's pet shelters, the rise in homelessness or even the insane spike in rent prices of NYC apartments, there are many ways to improve how this city operates. From cleaning up some of the best NYC parks, donating clothing to thrift stores that give back or volunteering for specific holidays such Thanksgiving, Christmas and MLK Day of Service, we have great options for you to get involved.
