Of course, you can always bundle up and brave the crowds at the Parade, or simply watch on TV while you prepare to chow down….but why not start a new tradition and volunteer to help others on this day?  You can give thanks and show your thanks by helping others.  Here’s a partial list of opportunities.

God’s Love We Deliver:  This popular charity serves people throughout the city in every borough.  Check this list and see what slots are still open.

New York Cares:  This group offers support and aid to the underprivileged all over New York. This list of their Hunger programs is a good place to start.

The Coalition for the Homeless:  A shocking incident in Grand Central Terminal spurred the creation of this huge help and outreach program. Visit here to learn more about volunteering opportunities.

Of course,  you don’t have to wait till Thanksgiving to volunteer! Senior Planet members who volunteer find it fun and fulfilling, and a great way to meet new people…so find the nearest Senior Planet location and join up!
