Volunteering is not an option, or at least not right now because of the lack of time you have on your hands. Between working and being a full time single mother, you just don’t have time to take off even though you would like to help your community. Don’t feel too bad about that, a lot of people are in your shoes and they can relate to that problem. However if you have a little extra cash after the bills are paid, even if it’s just a few bucks, there are New York charities you can donate to which helps the community and causes of your choice too.
Now while that sounds good to you, finding a charity of your choice is not so easy and to be honest, you don’t know where to look either. That’s not a huge problem though because I have provided this article to at least give you some ideas and get you a head start in searching for your charity of choice. Not while I won’t list all the options available or even a whole lot of options, I’m hoping this will guide you into the right direction.
