With Giving Tuesday behind us and holiday season ahead, many New Yorkers are finding a charity that they’re passionate about through which to spread holiday cheer. Here are some charities I’ve found in NYC that are worth looking into. These worthwhile organizations are broad in scope to cover any type of charity you want to pay it forward to.
Citymeals on Wheels delivers meals to homebound older adult New Yorkers. These include meal programs, volunteer programs, aging initiatives, and more. In this way, Citymeals on Wheels helps older adults fulfill practical and emotional needs. Donate here.
