Changes for New York Cares Day

As April quickly approaches, it's time to fill you in on some major changes for New York Cares Day for Schools. 

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, but we will continue to offer year-round support to parks and gardens.

National Volunteer Week

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.

Take the next step

Many volunteers only join us on Cares Day. Now's the time to transform your Cares Day enthusiasm into year-round volunteering!
