2019 Holiday Toy Drive

2019 Holiday Toy Drive

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!

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.
