Backpacks For The Street

Current Volunteer Opportunities

Welcome to Backpacks For The Street volunteer registration. We operate by the mantra that a person's circumstances does not diminish their value as a human being or make them any less deserving of kindness and compassion. Something as simple as a backpack can give a person a boost of hope and show them they are not alone.

Registration Currently Open:


  • Feb. 23:   Backpcks, Coats & Sleeping Bag (Morning, LES and Downtown)

         Registration is FULL with a waiting list.


  • Feb 23th: Warehouse Help (Afternoon):
    • We need some extra hands to help us organize, inventory and move some things around in our warehous in Jamaica. This is a CRITICAL need, and as important as the other work we do.

    • Whether you can help for an hour or two or three or four, your particpation would be appreciated.

    • Pizza and beverages will be served too.
