Meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service.

Citywide Service Events

Join the dedicated teams of civic, youth and corporate groups who come together each year on New York Cares Day to transform the face of our city.

Give our public spaces a much-needed spring greening. Prepare community spaces for summer by raking leaves, pruning trees and bushes, painting fences and benches, planting hundreds of flowers and bulbs and removing winter debris.

Enliven the spirits and minds of New York City’s school children by transforming public schools into inspiring learning environments. Brighten indoor and outdoor spaces with vibrant murals and a fresh coat of paint or organize libraries during the city’s largest day of volunteer service.
