Dear Friends,

As we approach May 15 and the end of the full New York State on Pause period, it is clear that although much progress has been made in combating COVID-19, New York City will not be among the first to reopen.

The resiliency of New Yorkers is legendary, and we salute all who are working on the front lines or volunteering to help reduce the impact of the virus.  We also mourn the loss of those we’ve lost to the pandemic.

All of us at the Volunteer Referral Center eagerly await the day when we can meet with you in person.  We look forward to returning to what we do best: counseling and connecting those who want to help with those who urgently need their help and sustaining our vital network of individuals, families, agencies and communities throughout New York City.

In the meantime, our nonprofit community of 300 nonprofit organizations continues to innovate new ways to care for and connect with those in need.  Whether you are tech-savvy or old-school, you can help others and yourself to stay connected and make a difference.

Several opportunities are featured in this newsletter.  Please see the list below.  We will continue to provide this vital link during this crisis, gathering information to share with you in support of our communities.

You can also help us sustain our services by making a donation to the Volunteer Referral Center, now celebrating 31 years of connecting volunteers with NYC profit organizations.

Thank you.
