Check back here to this post for the latest information and please feel free to share other worthy local organizations with specific needs in the Comments below.

For New York-Area folks, we have a great volunteer opportunity calendar that can be found here by clicking through to this link. It provides date, time, remaining volunteer slots, description from now through the rest of the year and updates as we add additional opportunities. All of our volunteer opportunities are in all five boroughs at this time.
This link provides folks with the option to host a virtual or traditional food drive, items urgently needed and how to register a traditional food drive for pick up. We cannot accept food donations via mail.
