Because of the heat advisory for this weekend issued by NYC Emergency Management and the Health Department, select programming that may pose a risk to our volunteers and clients has been cancelled. Projects with partners who provide critical services will take place, but we encourage our volunteers to follow safety tips including drinking plenty of water and staying inside/out of the sun when possible. Please check your email for information on the status of specific projects. Thank you!
As April quickly approaches, it's time to fill you in on some major changes to New York Cares Day Spring.
In an effort to meet the most pressing needs in our community, New York Cares will no longer be focusing on a single day of service in the form of New York Cares Day Spring. We will continue to offer support to parks and gardens this Spring, as we do all throughout the year.

This April, New York Cares will be playing a more significant role in the national discussion on volunteer service. For National Volunteer Week, brought to you by Points of Light, we're taking the opportunity to recognize and thank our volunteers who lend their time, talent, voice and support to New York City. This year's theme, Unlock NYC, will illustrate how New York Cares opens the door to volunteer possibilities. Learn how to get involved in the festivities and join the conversation.
