National Volunteer Week 2011

Posted on 4/11/2011 by The Bridge

National Volunteer Week is from April 10-16th this year. The theme is "Celebrating People in Action," to honoring the individuals who dedicate themselves to taking action and solving problems in their communities. To commemorate this week of volunteer recognition, The Bridge will be working with the Community TeamWorks (CTW) group from Goldman Sachs on May 11th to begin planting in the Upper East Side residence Urban Garden in Manhattan.

CTW is Goldman Sachs’ volunteer program that allows each employee one day away from work to volunteer on a team-based project with a nonprofit organization. They will be joining The Bridge Horticultural Team to plant a fruit tree, transplant seedling, ready plant beds and prepare a celebratory lunch featuring the herbs and vegetables being planted.

Here at The Bridge we are very excited to welcome the CTW team and celebrate National Volunteer Week. We encourage all types of volunteering. Some of the main areas for people to volunteer with The Bridge are teaching a skill to our clients, like using the computer or cooking, and leading social or recreational activities, like a trip to a museum or residence activities. For information about volunteering please contact Ann Hyatt, Director of Development and External Relations, at or call 212-663-3000, ext. 379.
