Thank you for choosing to make a difference in NYC!

Volunteers are an integral part of the NYCP, and their contributions are invaluable and much appreciated.  Without the dedication and tireless enthusiasm of our volunteers, we could not provide our services.

We also encourage companies, organizations, classrooms and families to host or participate in our off-site volunteer opportunities by holding food drives for our Choice Pantry, collecting toiletries for Project Dignity, and donating sandwiches for Help 365.



Please note: At this time, all volunteers must be 16+.
We have opportunities to volunteer in Manhattan and Bronx Choice pantries, as well as our Harlem Hot Meals program.  Please click on one of the links below to view availability for each individual location.
