HONOR NEW YORKERS AFFECTED BY COVID-19

Partnerships for Parks relies on our corporate volunteer partners to help care for our green spaces. This fall, we are excited to offer an opportunity to plant crocuses that will bloom in March 2021—brightening city parks and green spaces with their purple blossoms and helping bring hope as we memorialize New Yorkers who’ve been impacted by COVID-19. Please consider making a contribution. Your support both provides volunteer opportunities for your employees and ensures that tens of thousands of crocus bulbs are planted across the city to honor those affected by the pandemic.
