As many of you know, the Park Church Co-op (129 Russell Street) is not only one of Greenpoint’s coolest churches, featuring unorthodox events like rock concerts, dance parties and sound baths, but it’s almost exclusively run by volunteers and dedicated community members. They have many exciting events and projects in store, and they would love to see more folks in the neighborhood getting involved. If you’d like to volunteer for any of the upcoming opportunities below, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pregnancy Loss Support Group Vigil

Community members are coming together for a candlelight vigil to reflect on the difficulties pregnancy loss. We need volunteers to come and bring snacks/beverages and offer general support.
Kids Spooky Halloween Party
October 29th 2PM-5PM
Parents in the neighborhood are organizing a fun Halloween event with games, face painting and trick or treating. We need volunteers to help with decorating and staffing the event.
Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities:
Our Concert Series has hosted some amazing acts ranging from Lydia Lunch to Wise Blood. We are always in need of people to run the bar, door, help out with Church PR and just be an extra set of hands!
Greenpoint Public Library
As many of you know the Greenpoint Public Library has been under renovations. We need volunteers to staff the Pop-up library Weekdays Noon-4PM and Weekends 10AM-2PM
Letter Writing Campaign
There has been some community interest in organizing a letter writing campaign around promoting access to affordable housing in Greenpoint.
Last year we held a successful event where we were able to provide fresh clothes and haircuts for the homeless in Greenpoint. We’d love to revive this project but need more volunteer support!
Children’s Play Group
Since the playground at McGolrick Park will be under renovations the Park Church Co-op is considering keeping our doors open for playtime hours in the winter. We’d like to get a group of committed parents from the community together who can help oversee such a project.
