New York Cares has hundreds of ways you can make a difference
in our city this holiday season. In addition to our volunteer opportunities and our Winter
Wishes and Coat Drive programs, we also help nonprofit agencies throughout the city promote their holiday needs.
Below, you can search a number of holiday volunteer opportunities and donation requests from our nonprofit partners. These aren't managed by New York Cares, so you should contact the organization in the listing if you are interested in getting involved.
If you would like to list holiday needs, download an application.
