Saturdays with a Purpose (SWAP) is a monthly volunteer event in New York City.

On November 4, we will have the opportunity to work with The New York Dream Center, which is a Protected content nonprofit organization that exists to serve New Yorkers right where they are to where they dream to be.

Adopt-A-Block: Saturday Block Party is the Dream Center NYC’s program designed to serve individuals in Chelsea who live in public housing. This weekly program allows families to receive much needed household goods while showing them respect and maintaining their dignity. Creating this fun atmosphere gives space for relationships to build, humanity to thrive, and lifeless handouts to be a thing of the past.

Volunteers will distribute donated goods to community attendees, and sit and speak or pray with members of the Chelsea-Elliot community during the outreach. A short orientation will be provided on the day of the event.

After the event, we will all walk over to the Chelsea Market to have an informal gathering over coffee and snacks.
