It’s easy to sign up! The following volunteer opportunities are available through our online portal: rodephsholom.org/volunteerhub.
Backpack Buddies helps children who are food insecure, and do not have access to enough food for an active, healthy life. Volunteers are needed Wednesday mornings to pack the backpacks and Friday mornings to deliver them to our program partners.
A frigid winter’s night in New York City sees too many homeless people suffering on the street. If you volunteer for a night in the CRS Homeless Shelter, you are providing immediate help to a person who has nowhere else to sleep.
Come join 14 volunteers one Sunday a month from November to June to prepare and serve meals to visitors at the St. Xavier’s Soup Kitchen in Chelsea. All volunteers must be over 14, and children under 17 must be accompanied by an adult.
Help empower girls and women at this once-a-month program for Days for Girls, a grassroots non-profit organization that provides feminine hygiene kits to over 400,000 women and girls worldwide. All are welcome to create kits for girls and women in New York City. You do not need to know how to sew to participate. Run by Sisterhood, this is a great parent and child (age 11+) opportunity. This opportunity does not require registration on VolunteerHub.

Short on volunteer time? E-advocacy is a powerful tool for effecting change in the world. Every month, one cause is highlighted with an action item, most often to send an email to your legislators. It’s free, takes seconds, and has a real impact—when a lawmaker receives enough messages from constituents, things can change.
Rodeph Sholom partners with WIN to help women and children transitioning from homeless shelters to homes. Every month we provide at least five WIN families with cartons of food and kitchen supplies as they move in to their new homes. Volunteering can be done whenever the building is open.
Lend your voice to speak up for reproductive rights. This group lobbies, writes, and protests to empower women and girls through better laws and public policy.
Rodeph Sholom is committed to assisting refugees, immigrants, and other groups that are at-risk. There are many areas where you can help—our Task Force subcommittees include Advocacy and Communications, Resettlement, and more. Volunteering adults use the full power of their professional skills and knowledge to help those who desperately need their aid.
Responding quickly to a social justice opportunity can make a big difference in how a pressing issue is resolved. The Social Action Committee’s Mobilize/Rapid Response Team organizes to attend events such as protests and demonstrations or to launch an immediate response with phone calls, emails, and letters to legislators. When people show up, change happens.
