CORPORATE VOLUNTEERS

Carter Burden Network offers a wide variety of opportunities to meet your organization's interests. Opportunities can range from a one-time service day to a long-term volunteer commitment, as well as a customized corporate "Service Day" with multiple coordinated volunteer activities tailored to your company's preferences, either weekdays or weekends. 

Volunteering contributes to the strengthening of the organization's corporate culture and also benefits the community. It improves job satisfaction, encourages teamwork, promotes leadership and develops employees' skills—all while helping to boost the company's corporate social responsibility's public profile. Some corporations that volunteer with the Carter Burden Network include: Colgate-Palmolive, Macquarie, ABC Disney, Bank of America, Hogan Lovell's, Macy's Google, Trish McEvoy Cosmetics and Invesco, etc.

Meal Service

Every day, seniors gather to socialize and enjoy a hot meal. The Carter Burden Network prides itself on serving restaurant-style meals made in our own kitchens and served on-site to our participants. Volunteers work both in the kitchen and dining room in food preparation, meal distribution, and cleaning capacities. 

Hours & Locations: Volunteer hours are from 11:00am - 1:00pm. Meal Service operates in two locations: Monday - Friday at the Carter Burden Luncheon Club & Senior Program located in the Upper East Side (351 East 74th Street) and Monday - Sunday at the Carter Burden/Leonard Covello Senior Program located in East Harlem (312 East 109th Street).

Meal Delivery 

The Carter Burden Luncheon Club oversees meal delivery to homebound senior citizens living in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Meal delivery volunteers not only provide the advantage of a daily lunch to our seniors but are able to interact with those they are benefitting face-to-face. Each meal delivery also serves as a status check and a friendly visit for seniors who are often unable to leave their home and receive few, if any, visitors. Meals are delivered on foot to clients living between 69th and 79th Streets, between 5th Avenue and the East River. Volunteers should be able to carry 5-10 pounds and walk up several flights of stairs comfortably. 

Hours & Location: Volunteer hours are from 10:15am to 12:30pm, Monday through Saturday. Volunteers may choose the frequency of their commitment, from a one-time experience to a regular weekly route. The Meal Delivery program operates out of the Upper East Side Location.
