Support NYC Parks: Donations for COVID-19 Relief

As New York City is facing an unprecedented crisis while battling the COVID-19 pandemic, NYC Parks staff on the front lines are working hard to keep the City’s parks open, safe, and clean.

NYC Parks is looking for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) donations, including face masks and rubber gloves, for staff members working in the field. We will ensure that any PPE donated will be shared equitably among staff with the greatest needs.

We are also seeking donations of packaged food and beverages, vouchers or gift cards, personal care items, and more to boost staff morale.
