From coordinating our House Tours to decorating our Festival of Trees and managing our Online Silent Auction, there are plenty of ways to get involved and make a meaningful impact.

NYFS is committed to nurturing and empowering children and families in our community, and your contribution as a volunteer will play a vital role in furthering our mission.

Joining the planning committee means meeting once a month to brainstorm ideas, delegate tasks, and ensure that our Holiday Festival is a resounding success. Whether you're a seasoned event planner or just someone with a passion for giving back, we welcome volunteers of all backgrounds and skill levels.

So, if you're ready to roll up your sleeves and get into the holiday spirit, we want to hear from you! To sign up or learn more about volunteering for the NYFS 39th Holiday Festival Planning Committee, please contact Susan Smith at or Julie Schmitter at
