NYC (and more) Service Opportunities

Looking to show love and compassion this holiday season? I found this great website that helps you to find volunteering opportunities and/or find organizations that work for the greater good in New York City. Initiated in 2009 after Barack Obama encouraged more volunteerism in our country, New York City became the first “City of Service” and was followed by 200 more. They have a goal of getting more New Yorkers to be active volunteering citizens — a goal that spreads compassion and awareness.
Below are the most recent opportunities available in the NYC area:

Communities & Neighbors Education Economic & Workforce Development
Health & Wellness Environment Emergency Preparedness & Response

I also gathered websites where you can find volunteering opportunities in these other large U.S. cities:

Los Angeles, CA
L.A. Works
Chicago, IL
Chicago Cares
Houston, TX
Volunteer Houston
Philadelphia, PA
Serve Philadelphia

If you have more information on volunteering opportunities in your city email us at alyssablooms@gmail.com to submit.
