There are multiple ways to get involved in the life-transforming work of The Bowery Mission. Learn how your support can provide critical care and rebuild hope for people experiencing homelessness, hunger and poverty in the New York metro area. Find more information below about attending our fundraising events, developing partnerships, joining our Associate Board, volunteering and more.
Volunteer for Thanksgiving
Volunteer registration opened at bowery.org/thanksgivingvolunteer on Friday, November 1. Because of the extremely high demand to volunteer on Thanksgiving Day, and the relatively small size of our facility, we regret that we cannot accommodate everyone who wants to volunteer that day. This is to protect the experience of our community and the safety of all people on-site.
We do not accept walk-in volunteers on Thanksgiving Day. Volunteers MUST sign up through our online Thanksgiving registration to be allowed on-site that day. If you are interested in volunteering on Thanksgiving, but do not see availability online, please check back regularly for any openings as previous registrants may cancel.
Volunteer for Other Times of the Year
Without the help of over 13,000 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!
