Empire State Development needs volunteers to counsel an estimated 500,000 small businesses across New York state that are eligible to apply for the federal Small Business Administration (SBA) disaster loans. Volunteers will be part of the Empire State Development’s COVID-19 Volunteer Task Force through the Business NY Mentor program. Institutions that are prepared to field a team of volunteers or individuals who are interested should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information on how to sign up to volunteer.
In coordination with New York City Emergency Management, New York Cares is mobilizing volunteers to support vulnerable populations through programming such as phone calls to support seniors living in isolation, virtual learning to support students, and on-the-ground packaging and meal deliveries. More information on volunteer opportunities and making a donation to support New York Cares can be found here.
