“I got an email yesterday from one of our attorneys that said, ‘I saw your van by St. Bart’s – that’s incredible what you’re doing!’ … If you want to feel good about helping people in New York, this is the way.” – Greg Burke, Lane Office
There are many easy ways for your company and employees to get involved helping New York’s neediest men, women and children:
Program Sponsorships are the most direct way for your company to help homeless New Yorkers.
To learn more about how sponsoring a Coalition program can benefit your company, contact our Director of Development, or simply make a gift by clicking here.
Sponsoring one of the Coalition’s special events is a win-win for your company. Your name will receive exposure to a large audience of New York City business leaders, philanthropists, high net worth individuals and other notables, while demonstrating your company’s dedication to helping homeless New Yorkers.
To learn more, contact our Manager of Special Events.
Blankets, school supplies, a warm winter coat or the right clothes for a job interview: You can help us collect items that make a tremendous difference in the lives of homeless adults and children. To learn more about what is needed and how to get involved, visit our page about Drives or In-Kind Giving.
The Coalition has opportunities for both individuals and companies themselves to volunteer their time.
The First Step Job Training Program is always looking for new businesses to host “Corporate Days” (full or half-day sessions) exposing our students to your area of expertise. We are also seeking more companies to join the notable list of private corporations, non-profits and law firms that provide eight-week internships to our students.
The Coalition for the Homeless offers several convenient and engaging volunteer opportunities for corporations and businesses throughout the year with our Grand Central Food Program, Camp Clean-Up Day, job coaching and preparing for our back-to-school and toy drive.
Visit our Volunteer page for more information or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you or your company would like to organize a volunteer day.
Corporations that support the Coalition for the Homeless know that doing good is good business.
Not only do employees prefer to work for companies that show responsible corporate citizenship, but nearly 90% of consumers want the products and services they use to support a worthy cause.
The Coalition is proud to recognize LAFCO this month as a featured sponsor of the Grand Central Food Program. Thanks to their generosity, we were able to provide food, hygiene items and cash cards to those in need on the streets during this crisis.
