Our Volunteer Program’s Best Year Yet!

January 10

Our Volunteer Program broke records in 2016! 1,992 volunteers devoted over 6,400 service hours to help our Park thrive. That’s more volunteers contributing more hours than ever before, and their hard work shows! Volunteer assistance with Park beautification projects—from marine debris cleanup to gardening to painting—has our parklands looking better than ever. And the enthusiasm and support of our volunteers helped thousands of Park fans enjoy public programming and fundraising events.

To the 30 corporate groups who joined us for #HRPVolunteerDays, to our devoted HRP Green Team members, and to all of you who came out to lend a hand in your Park in 2016—THANK YOU! We could not keep Hudson River Park so healthy and beautiful without your dedication and stewardship!

A special thanks to our Volunteer Program’s Presenting Sponsor, Citi, and Supporting Sponsors, The AMES Companies, Anheuser-Busch InBev, Colgate-Palmolive and Time Warner for making this wonderful program possible.
