In New York City 22,000 children will spend the holidays in homeless shelters, but you can help bring them the warmth and happiness of the season. A new toy is a simple way to make a big impact on the life of a child in need!
- Buy a toy from our Amazon Wish List!
- Drop-off a NEW, unwrapped toy from our list at the Coalition’s office through December 13th: 129 Fulton Street, New York, NY 10038 (Monday – Friday, 9:30 am – 6 pm)
- Donate to our Kids’ Holiday Carnival
Kids Holiday Carnival
Our toy drive will culminate in a Holiday Carnival for homeless kids hosted by the Coalition and the United Federation of Teachers. Boys and girls living in New York City homeless shelters will gather at UFT for a festive holiday lunch and be treated to face painting, carnival games, music and special visits from their favorite characters, and even Santa himself. Each child will receive a festively wrapped present and gift bag to take with them. Our Holiday Carnival is always a great time for kids to have fun and enjoy the magic of the holiday season! Thank you for helping us provide a wonderful holiday season for girls and boys living in shelters.
