Donate Your Time
Volunteers are needed more than ever at Encore! While many organizations have scaled back due to COVID-19, the need for Encore’s meals and services has increased by 45%. Individuals, families, corporate groups and civic groups are needed to give their time either on a one-time basis or on long-term projects. For more information about volunteer opportunities, you can email or call our Director of Community Outreach at (212) 581-2910 ext. 1108 or click here for our volunteer form.
