Help Now: Volunteer

vol_014We 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.
