Support COVID-19 Relief Efforts

New York Cares is currently working with city agencies and Community Partners to assess our response to those most impacted by COVID-19. If you would like more information on projects addressing COVID-19 in the coming days and weeks, please sign up.

Please note: This is a general interest campaign and serves to capture volunteer interests. A project will not be taking place at this time. Once opportunities become available, we will contact you directly.


Since 1987, New York Cares has been our city's premier volunteering organization. We create opportunities for tens of thousands of busy New Yorkers to give their time each year through fulfilling, flexibly-scheduled volunteer projects. New York Cares responds to our city's most acute needs by reaching out to social service agencies, schools, homeless shelters, and other deserving organizations, and mobilizing teams of volunteers to help with their work. Volunteers tutor children, feed the hungry, assist people living with HIV/AIDS, revitalize community gardens, and much more.
