With Thanksgiving upon us and Christmas arriving soon, many people’s thoughts turn to giving. While there are countless material items available for purchase, one present that lasts long after the holidays is the gift of your time. Catholic Charities has multiple volunteer opportunities that allow you to dedicate your talents to helping needy New Yorkers.
Some of the ways you can get involved include:
- This Saturday, help clean up a home badly damaged by Sandy—transportation provided from Manhattan.
- Become a companion for a senior citizen—your company is especially appreciated during the holidays.
- Help out at Nazareth Housing’s Emergency Food Pantry—choose from three different time slots to fit your schedule.
To sign up for these and many other volunteering options, visit our volunteer website. Your time can make all the difference for your neighbors in need this holiday season.
