During the holiday season, families gather to enjoy delicious meals, exchange gifts and celebrate the year gone by.
But for a number of underprivileged New Yorkers the holiday season can be a particularly difficult time. Volunteering is a wonderful way to help those in need, and an ideal opportunity to teach children the true spirit of the season.
We've rounded up some of our favorite kid-friendly volunteering opportunities. No matter where in the tristate area you live, the age of your children or your family's interests, chances are there is a program to fulfill your holiday volunteering desires.
