BENEFITING: New York Cares

THE STORY:

Think back to your school days and picture the best days you can remember. Field trips probably stand out. How can we possibly forget how ridiculously awesome those giant dinosaurs and woolly mammoths were at the museum? Those seal shows and monkey exhibits at the zoo were a thing to be talked about for days, too. And field days? Spending an entire school day playing games in the park? Fuhgeddaboudit.

Unfortunately, some kids can go their entire childhood without ever visiting a museum or theater or zoo. A whopping 94% of New York City public schools don’t even have an athletic field. But New York Cares volunteers are there to help.

We keep them healthy and active on sports and fitness projects, bring out their creativity through arts and culture projects, and expose them to the unique activities and culture of New York City on recreational outings. We even sneak in a little education (shh, don’t tell ‘em) through our Play and Read and Study Now, Play Later programs.

Children’s Recreation projects involve more than just a play day with our volunteers, though. We have to create a safe environment for the kids, provide them with transportation, lunch, and send them home in one piece. It’s a lot of work, but it’s a worthy endeavor. If you agree, click on the Donate button now and give $20! We don't think a childhood is complete without seeing a dinosaur at least once.

All donations will support New York Cares' general programming, which provides critical services to 400,000 at-risk New Yorkers each year. For information on making donations to support specific programs, please contact Jennifer.Goldschein@newyorkcares.org
