Whether it's bringing some cheer to a lonely patient, delivering flowers from loved ones, making a sick patient less anxious, or just giving directions, our volunteers have a great and lasting impact on patients.
Volunteers range in age from teens to seniors, but they all share a generosity of spirit and a dedication to giving. Volunteering is also an opportunity to join one of the top healthcare providers in the region.

We may not want to think about what's going to happen to our bodies after we die, so it can be hard to consider donating your organs and tissue. But it's important to know that thousands of Americans die each year because there are not enough suitable donors. Being an organ or tissue donor is a generous, rewarding decision that can save many lives.
Become a tissue and organ donor
When you become an organ donor, you donate life. Consider these facts from the New York Organ Donor Network (NYODN):
- More than 120,000 people nationwide are on the national waiting list for a lifesaving organ transplant, including approximately 10,000 New Yorkers.
- Every 10 minutes, another person is added to the list.
- A single donor can save the lives of eight people through organ donation and improve the lives of up to 50 others with tissue donation.
