The Good Neighbors initiative aims to connect StuyTown residents and employees with each other and our local community, through volunteering efforts throughout the city and state, as well as internal charity events.
Our program organizers will continuously search for events to cater to various causes, and will update the calendar throughout the year to provide a variety of volunteering events.
The goal is to broaden our community outreach to those who need assistance while building on our own sense of community.
Current / Previous Initiatives
- StuyTown Property Services (SPS) is sponsoring the inaugural year of the Peter Stuyvesant Little League’s Challenger division for children with intellectual and physical disabilities. Children/young adults, between the ages of 4-18, can register here.
- In December 2016, the StuyTown Property Services’ (SPS) human resources team delivered 53 completed care packages to the local VA Medical Center at 423 East 23rd Street. The packages containing deodorant, shaving cream, combs, toothbrushes and toothpaste, dental floss, soap, and shampoo, were distributed to veterans who were staying at the facility for treatment. One of the reasons the VA was selected was because of its geographic proximity to StuyTown and because StuyTown was originally built to provide housing for returning WWII vets. StuyTown played the role of facilitator between its employees and the VA, which specifically requested donations of toiletries rather than other items.
- In 2016, StuyTown Property Services coordinated three other collections among both employees and residents: 400 pounds of canned goods for City Harvest Food Drive, 350 gently used coats for New York Cares Coat Drive, and new toys for Toys For Tots and Mount Sinai-Beth Israel Toy Drive, 200 and 400 toys, respectively.
