New York City has so much to offer; sometimes it feels good to give the city something back. With the exception of Ebenezer Scrooge (Bah humbug!) the holiday season seems to foster our most benevolent inclinations. With this in mind, I thought it would be a good time to investigate opportunities to volunteer our services to those in need.
The first Website I landed on turned out to be New York Cares, the organization that sponsors an annual Winter Coat Drive, extending this year through the 31st of the month. After all, the weather outside really is frightful these days, and the only thing worse than being there is being outside without a coat!
