Posted on January 19, 2023 by Yerelyn Nuñez We are thrilled to announce that the Coalition’s 2022 Holiday Toy Drive was a great success. Thanks to you and your support we collected and distributed nearly 10,000 toys to children in New York City shelters! We were delighted to kick off the season by throwing our annual Kid’s Holiday Carnival on December 10th with more than 70 children, who joined us for an afternoon of games, music, festive food and special guests. The children were elated to walk into a winter wonderland of colorful decorations, delicious food and exciting gift bags packed with special treats. Everyone sat in awe during the amazing magic show, and the kids were overjoyed as they were treated to a personal visit with Santa himself, who sent all of the children home with their arms full of goodies and presents. Thanks to you, we were able to give out hundreds of action figures, barbie dolls, cars, plush toys, and so much more, giving thousands of children the magic and joy of the holidays! But most importantly, we gave these great kids happy memories that they will look back on with smiles for years to come. We want to send a special thanks to Spectrum News and Roger Clark for once again featuring our Toy Drive in the news, which resulted in an overwhelming wave of toys and support. We also appreciate all of the companies that participated and helped make all this possible, especially Antin Infrastructure Partners, Atrium, Ben Group, Carnegie Corporation of NY, Danone, PDT Partners, Parsons, Pfizer, Siguler Guff & Company, SimCorp, and so many more! And a special thanks to all the individuals who shared info about and supported the drive to help us reach our goal! We know it is not an easy time for many of us, and that makes any type of support we receive even more special. Thank you for reminding us that through the good times and the hard times, you are still here with us. Thanks again, and happy New Year from everyone at the Coalition!
