Volunteer Day!


Join us on Saturday, February 18th at 10am and help us make over our playrooms! We need volunteers to paint, assemble new furniture and toys, and be a part of our community!

A little about our playrooms: Over one thousand children visit our downtown Brooklyn office each year to meet with their counselors, attend groups, or visit with their birth families. We have three playrooms at this site which have not been painted or furnished since 2009! Thanks to a generous donation of paint from color guru, Donald Kaufman of Donald Kaufman Color, we are ready to transform these rooms! Please lend your talents on February 18th! We will have coffee and bagels aplenty to start off the day and all volunteers will be treated to lunch as well.

If you are interested in participating, please contact us at volunteer@egscf.org

If you are unable to attend, but would like to donate to our office beautification project, please visit our donation page to make a contribution or reach out to development@egscf.org


Holiday Food Drive!


Little Girl Eating Thanksgiving Celebration Concept

Put food on her table this holiday season!

We work with more than 500 families across NYC who will go without a holiday meal this year without your help! We are collecting non-perishables and cash donations and will distribute food baskets to families on November 17th and December 19th. Donations are accepted year-round for emergency food needs.

Three Ways To Help:


We have set up a wish list with needed items. Purchasing this way will have your gifts delivered directly to us. Please note your name and address on the order as a note to us or send us an e-mail with the receipt so that we can credit your donation to you and send an acknowledgement. Click here for the Wishlist.


Collect non-perishables at your place of business, community organization, or place of worship. Contact us at mrichardson2@egscf.org  for assistance in setting this up or arranging a pick-up.


A monetary gift will enable us to purchase the food in most need or add fresh foods to the baskets. Please click here or contact Sharon 212-437-3551.

Winter Holiday Giving!



We are looking for volunteers to help with our annual holiday giving drives. Holiday gifts and Thanksgiving food baskets are needed for many of our children and families. These are ideal projects for a team of coworkers, students looking for service opportunities, religious organizations, and other charitably-minded groups and individuals. Every year, we distribute over 1,000 gifts to children living in foster care, in unstable housing, or who are living through a time of family crisis. Help us to make that possible again this year! Contact Sharon Pyle at 212-437-3551 or spyle@egscf.org
