We have volunteer opportunities for individuals across the metropolitan area. Share your time and talents with us and help enrich the lives of men, women and children in need.
Individual Engagement Opportunities
Thank you for your interest in getting involved!
We have many opportunities for individuals to donate their time and talent to help those in need. We encourage you to volunteer, hold a drive or get involved in fundraising for Operation Backpack®. If you're a corporate or community group, please visit this page to find out how you can help.
Organize a Drive
Organize a fundraiser or collection drive among your friends, family and colleagues, or with your community group.
Donate backpacks and school supplies, or hold a collection drive in your community, to ensure children living in NYC shelters start school with the supplies they need.
