New York Cares and So Do We
The New York Cares Fundraising Committee presented the Autumn Affair at 1 Oak this year to celebrate the start of fall and raise money for the organization. With our help, along with the help of Delta Airlines, Kelly Green Events, Artichoke Basille’s Pizza, Cabot Cheese, and Barefoot they raised over 20,000 dollars through ticket sales and incredible raffle prizes. New York Cares was founded by a group of friends who wanted to take action against serious social issues that faced NYC in the late 1980s so they created their own organization to address the problems from the ground up. How amazing is that! Today, New York Cares is now the city’s largest volunteer management organization, running volunteer programs for 1,300 nonprofits, city agencies, and public schools. Today’s volunteers share our founders’ vision that we all have a role to play in making our city a better place.
Love what they stand for!
