February Volunteer Opportunities

February is Black History Month

Celebrate the prominent African Americans who have shaped our country with a trivia night and snacks at any of our residences.

Be Our Valentine!

Host a Valentine's Day party, complete with games, crafts and snacks, at one of our family shelters or supportive housing residences to show a little love to our neighbors in need.

Take a Field Trip

February 17-21 is Midwinter Recess for New York City public schools. Many of the children living in our shelters do not have the luxury of going away on vacation with family or sightseeing around the city without proper supervision. Give them a fun experience they can tell their friends about after the break by hosting an afternoon of activities or sponsoring a field trip!

If any of these ideas sound like a good fit for your team, or if you have any other suggestions, please reach out to Andrew Zibell, Corporate & Community Engagement Manager at azibell@voa-gny.org or (212) 496-4307.
