Bring friends, family, or co-workers and donate, prepare and serve dinner to residents. Host a monthly birthday party and bring or bake cookies, cakes, or your favorite dessert. Host the Saturday Bingo and High Noon Tea event. Lead a recreational activity like yoga, karaoke, drumming, an arts & crafts class, or a comedy show. Lead a discussion of books or current events.  Tackle an indoor beautification project like painting and decorating the residences.  In warmer weather host a barbecue or tend the rooftop garden. 

We also need volunteers at our downtown administrative office to help with fundraising and communications, clerical tasks, research, and event logistics.

You can donate your time from the comfort of your home as a virtual volunteer by organizing drives and helping NCS source donations for much needed basic necessities like laundry detergent, toiletries, and linens. We also welcome volunteer drivers who can pick-up and drop off donations at our Manhattan and Bronx program sites. 

For corporate or other groups, we are happy to help you plan fulfilling volunteer group activities like meal prep, painting, and gardening projects. We also welcome relevant workshops, like financial literacy or mock interviews.  We are always open to new ideas so let us know what interests you and how you can help.
