This is New York Cares' second year partnering with Centerline Captial Group's New York City-based employees for a large-scale volunteer event. The first year was an incredible success; the Centerline team tackled a massive park clean-up, mended and sorted baby clothes for a local nonprofit, read to school children in transitional housing, and served hot meals to hungry families.
We are currently planning a second, large-scale revitalization project to happen this summer. We are certain that Centerline's employees will bring the same dedication and exemplary work ethic they brought to the first year. We look forward to another inspiring and successful event.
New York Life Insurance Company
New York Life Insurance Company, a longtime supporter of New York Cares, has committed to their first ever volunteer month of service with New York Cares. This May, 85 New York Life Insurance Company volunteers will guide underserved children through New York City museums, practice reading skills with children at New York City public schools, and teach crucial financial literacy skills to high school students.
While these customized service projects are a first for the New York Life Insurance Company, their employees have volunteered on Hands On New York Day and New York Cares Day and have collected coats for the New York Cares Coat Drive for many years. Their dedication to these citywide service events has helped meet critical needs and made New York City a better place for everyone.
Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP
Last spring, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP came to New York Cares looking for ways to engage their summer associates and employees in service. Skadden employees were interested in helping in many different ways, so we planned a variety of volunteer projects that would provide everyone a rewarding experience. At different sites across the city, volunteers revitalized parks in low-income neighborhoods, took children on a multi-ethnic eating tour of the Lower East Side, helped adults re-entering the workforce prepare résumés and practice interview skills, and played Math Olympics with elementary school children. Skadden volunteers approached each project with great enthusiasm and made an impact on thousands of lives.
