Donations come in many shapes and forms. The most familiar form of donation tends to be the gift of money. In addition to this, there are many ways you can make a difference in the living of families, children, veterans and others in Upstate NY. You can: 

  • Make a donation - VOA ensures that the money that is being entrusted to us is used effectively to make the most difference possible.
    • Host a donation drive. Simple things like winter gloves and hats for children, care packages for families entering the VOA Family Shelter. Socks, toothbrushes, shampoo - these are the simple things people often need when they enter our homeless shelters. Click here to see our list of needed items for a donation drive. 
    • Volunteer with us! You can see openings here. You'll find that you are not only making a difference but the experience will bring joy to you as well.
