This week, as we reflect on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, host Danielle Holly and New York Cares Executive Director Gary Bagley have a conversation on how era defining moments from the 9/11 attacks to the current pandemic and racial reckoning bring on new waves of service and activism. They also talk about New York Cares’ increased focus on food insecurity, taking meaningful action on DEI, and why companies actually benefit more from designing service programs around nonprofit and community needs rather than their own business results.
New York Cares is the City’s largest volunteer network offering thousands of opportunities with schools, senior centers, soup kitchens, civic organizations, and nonprofits. Visit newyorkcares.org to learn more about how you can serve NYC or support the organization.
