  • 8 people are interested

Are you looking to help those who are homeless in NYC? At The Bowery Mission, we serve anyone looking for a helping hand. We rely on our volunteers to provide critical services to New Yorkers in need. Come help our team organize our clothing room in service of our weekday clothing and shower program.

Tasks include organizing, cleaning, preparing bagged orders for guests, and interacting with staff.

We're in high need of summer volunteers. Shifts are posted Monday-Saturday, with some variety in timing depending on the day.

Email us at volunteer@bowery.org or text Harrison at 646-362-3112 for more information. Or simply sign up on www.bowery.volunteerhub.com. On our website, click the events tab and sort by "Clothing Room - Bowery" to find available shifts!

About The Bowery Mission

Location:

227 Bowery, New York, NY 10002, US

Mission Statement

Since the 1870s, The Bowery Mission has served generations of New Yorkers experiencing homelessness, hunger, and poverty. Our mission is to see lives transformed - delivering hope and healing through the power of Jesus Christ.

Description

Without the help of thousands of volunteers each year, The Bowery Mission simply could not meet the needs of people experiencing homelessness and hunger in the New York metro area. People like YOU truly make our work possible! Volunteers play an especially vital role in our Compassionate Care program, which daily provides nutritious meals and meets other critical needs.

From packing to-go meals, unloading and sorting goods, wiping down tables and so much more - our faithful volunteers step up to make sure our guests can receive nourishing meals safely.

Just last year:

  • nearly 4,000 volunteers served with us to care for neighbors in need
  • Volunteers helped us prepare and serve more than 255,000 meals
  • Volunteers donated more than 22,000 hours of their time. That much time is equivalent to 2.5 years!
