Stand with Students

Help us address the emotional impacts of COVID-19, provide academic and recreational support, invest resources in schools, and so much more.

Send students a simple message: you are not alone.

Rally your friends, family, and coworkers to join us as we stand with students.

More than a year after NYC became the epicenter of the pandemic, the trauma of COVID-19 remains. As NYC public schools plan for in-person learning this fall, our commitment to stand with students has never been more important.

We stand with students because:

  • Volunteer-powered programs, virtually and in person, make a real impact on communities.
  • Every student deserves a quality education, the supplies they need to succeed, and a supportive learning environment.
  • Addressing the emotional effects of the pandemic isn't optional; it's essential.

 

Your donation helps:

  • Run educational programs for students such as virtual story-time, math games, and College Access
  • Provide back-to-school supplies like backpacks, notebooks, rulers, hygiene essentials and more
  • Develop new physical fitness programs for kids like zumba and yoga
  • Introduce social-emotional support resources to students and families
"New York Cares has been a partner of our school community for several years. They are a constant for us, standing by us in good times as well as challenging ones. We had communication with them virtually during the shutdown and they continually assist us in finding solutions when the need arises."
