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

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!

Fort Tryon Park is a gift to NYC by John D. Rockefeller. Centuries later, some consider it an outdoor piece of art with its' historic architecture. Near the Cloisters, a renovated medieval monastery, and with pristine views of the Hudson River, visitors can enjoy outdoor lunches, bike rides, dog runs and strolls.
