Help Now: Volunteer
We use between 5 – 15 volunteers a day and more help is almost always needed. Our volunteers have found that working at the warehouse is a rewarding experience. Bellow is a letter sent to us by a group from Maryland that came to New York and volunteered with us. It is our hope that all volunteers walk away with a similar feeling. It has been our experience that helping in the clean-up and recovery efforts is a healing process.
Volunteer Activities Include:
- Helping NYPD, FDNY, PAPD and other recovery personnel with supplies
- Taking in Donations
- Sorting and organizing donations
- Delivering supplies to caches at ground zero and fresh kills
- Answering phones
- Making phone call to solicit donations
- Loading and unloading trucks
- Computer data entry
- Creating Kits to be sent to firehouses
- Cheering up recovery workers who frequently visit the warehouse
The warehouse is open from 9am to 9pm seven days a week. Please call the warehouse at (646)230-1664 to schedule a time to volunteer.
