For 50 years, UNICEF USA has been providing support to designated UNICEF- assisted projects, an effort that has saved and improved the lives of millions of children around the world. We couldn't have achieved this goal without the support of countless volunteers who have given their time, talent, energy, and money to support UNICEF USA over the years. Our volunteers are men and women of all ages and from all walks of life. All of them have at least one thing in common, a belief that ALL children deserve a chance to live and grow. During this holiday season please remember that volunteers at the U.S. Fund for UNICEF help raise awareness and dollars to support UNICEF's work on behalf of the world's neediest children. Our local chapter in New York is always looking for volunteers and other chapters around the United States may need your services
