Donate Your Time

Volunteer opportunities are plentiful at Encore’s three sites. Individuals and corporate groups are welcome to give their time either on a one-time basis or on long-term projects. For more information about volunteer opportunities, you can email or call our Manager of Community Partnerships at 212 581 2910 ext. 1108.

Here are just a few ways you can give of your time and talent:

  • Visiting seniors in their homes, hospitals or nursing homes
  • Escorting and shopping for seniors
  • Packing and serving meals at the Senior Center or assisting with clean-up
  • Answering the phone at the Center
  • Updating computerized records
  • Helping with various fundraising events
  • Selling donated items at the Center’s Bargain Store Boutique



Individuals can also contact Encore to explore serving on its Board of Directors. To find out more, please email Jeremy Kaplan.

Who Volunteers?

Volunteers come from all walks of life and all age groups and there are opportunities available to suit everyone. Don’t be put off if you are working full-time or have little spare time–evenings, nights and/or weekend options are available as well. You can find volunteering opportunities that only take a couple of hours a month.
