What We Do
Engaging our members with different community service opportunities is our main priority. When our members find something they are passionate about, we act as a liaison between them and the program organization so that they can continue to do what they love.
Backyard Sports Plus
Everyone Can Play
This program is for special needs children in grades K – 8, a safe and appropriately competitive program to learn and enjoy team sports. The activities focus on athletic development skills while stressing the proper behaviors required for optional group cooperation. We mentor these kids while helping them with different sports each season.
JAWONIO Clothing Drive
One person of integrity can make a difference. -Elie Wiesel
Every year our organization organizes a clothing drive on behalf of Jawanio. The Jawonio Thrift Shop offers an opportunity for people with disabilities to develop job readiness skills in a retail environment while providing much needed clothing, shoes, handbags and house ware/giftware at very affordable prices to the Yonkers community.
Wall Street Rides Far for Autism Research
Raising Money to Fund Cutting Edge Advancements in Science
This bike ride brings Westchester County residents and Wall Street employees together to spread awareness by riding throughout the county, while also raising vital funds for autism research. Our volunteers helped with set up, food and beverage distribution, and cheering for the riders.
Field Nursing Home
Caring for our Senior Citizens
Our volunteers love to engage with the residents at the nursing home. We make frequent visits either to put on musical performances, play bingo, trivia, and other interactive games, or teach them how to use the internet.
Cerebral Palsy of Westchester
Having Fun with Games and Crafts
Volunteering at the Summer Fun and Respite program at Cerebral Palsy of Westchester is always an eye-opening experience. We work with disabled children in the age range of 9 to 21. We play games such as UNO, checkers, and Dominoes with them as well as create arts and crafts.
Adopt - A - Road Program
Keeping our Roads Clean and Safe
Through Yorktown Recycling Center's Adopt-A-Road Program, our team of volunteers has helped clean Crompond Road and Baldwin Road in Yorktown Heights. These experiences highlight the necessity of better care for our planet, including taking small steps such as not littering or using reusable water bottles.
End Hunger in Westchester County
Summer is a time of year when food donations decrease and pantry supplies run dangerously low. That's why we hold food drives to restock the pantry shelves. Our members collect food items from friends and neighbors, which we take to the "Feeding Wetchester" food bank in Elmsford, NY.
Collecting Candy for our Troops
Every Halloween, our members conduct a candy drive for the soldiers at West Point. We partner with schools in the county and leave boxes in hallways for students to donate. It is one of our favorite events to give back to the troops. This year we collected over a thousand pounds of candy!
