About volunteering with us
We ask that parents only bring children old enough to be independent, and to not take young folks to clean-up/demolition sites. Our facility currently has generators but no heat so we ask everyone to dress warmly. Please bring all you need for a comfortable, warm day (including snacks/water/medicines) and do not bring anything of value or anything you don't want to get wet.
A wonderful retired NYPD group is on site grilling all day for the community, and pasta is available. We have port-o-pots on site.
