When coordinated, the power of volunteers is targeted to projects or areas in urgent need of help. Volunteers can help local organizations respond to emergencies in communities. The Volunteer Coordination Task Force can connect you to the most urgent projects in need of volunteers. Non-medical volunteers are not being accepted at City-run vaccine point of distribution PODs sites at this time.
We offer many opportunities for you to get involved and donate your time and talents to our patients. Spend a few hours every week playing with sick children or reading to elderly patients. Or join our local auxiliary or community advisory groups to help raise funds, support our mission and provide a voice for your community. See the video story from NYC Media.
Beyond quality time with family and loved ones, the holiday season has always been about giving back. Whether you have a full day to give or even just a free hour, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer throughout NYC. And if gave us any reason to be happy about staying home, we can also revel in the fact that many volunteer and fundraising opportunities have also gone virtual, so you can help the community through your smartphone or from the comfort of your couch, keeping everyone safe while still helping out.
