You gotta be kidding. Twenty major snow storms since December. Twice as much snow – 60 inches! – as the year before. And temperatures dipping yet again into the single digits.
Getting cabin fever?
Well, here at Catholic Charities we have the cure.
With dozens of volunteer opportunities to choose from, we’re certain to have the perfect outlet for you.
So don’t let the weather keep you stuck inside.
Share your expertise with teens at our annual Career Day on March 13. Examples of past professional presenters include fire fighters, doctors, accountants, entrepreneurs, college representatives, professors, police officers, dancers, chefs and many more.
This volunteer opportunity gets you out big time. It involves distributing fliers, posters and other outreach material to let folks who live in Bronx Community District 2 — including Parkchester, Longwood, Soundview, Hunts Point, etc.– know about homeless services available.
You’ll provide support at our food pantries in Washington Heights, the Upper East Side and East Harlem
Is your company, team, office or women’s network interested in giving back? Serve as a model/mentor and help us find meaningful jobs for low-income, unemployed women.
Opportunities span from writing resumes to teaching women what it means to “lean in.”
Not quite ready to venture out? Our virtual data base assistants type and compile mailing lists for our new Washington Heights Community Center.
And that’s just for starters.
