19 Dec EXECUTIVE ENTERPRISE IDENTIFIES GREAT PLACES TO VOLUNTEER IN NEW YORK CITY
For anyone with an affinity for four-legged companions, we suggest that you reach out to Animal Care and Control of NYC (nyacc.org) or the American Association for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (aspca.org). There are dogs to walk, cats to cuddle, and cages to clean. You might even start a neighborhood watch program to identify and report signs of animal abuse.
If you aren’t sure exactly how you would like to help, NYC Service (nycservice.org) is the place to go. You will discover a wide range of opportunities, such as tutoring and planting trees. There are hundreds of options from which to choose.
Perhaps you’d like to get your whole family involved. New York Cares (newyorkcares.org) presents opportunities for teens as well as their parents, siblings, and other relations to give back to the community. You and your loved ones might run a holiday coat drive, for instance.
Are you a good listener? If so, consider reaching out to The Samaritans of New York (samaritansnyc.org). This organization trains volunteers to run a suicide prevention hotline. You can save lives just by lending your ear.
We at Executive Enterprise hope that you will connect with these or other organizations to improve the lives of those in your community. Not only that, but you will feel better for it as well.
