VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO FULFILL “WINTER WISHES” – HOLIDAY GIFTS FOR CHILDREN AND TEENS WITH NEW YORK CARES
The holiday season is right around the corner! Bring a smile to the faces of children and teens in need when you participate in the 29th annual New York Cares Winter Wishes program from October 21 through November 30.
In line with New York Cares’ mission to meet the most pressing community needs in the most impactful ways, Winter Wishes 2019 partners with family shelters, public housing facilities and public schools with high economic need across the five boroughs to provide gifts to fellow New Yorkers who would not otherwise receive presents during the holidays. This year’s program focuses on providing gifts to children and teens from ages 4–18 from low-income families.
New York Cares collects and screens more than 35,000 gift requests and sends them to volunteers who purchase, wrap, and send the gifts to its partner agencies. These seemingly random acts of kindness enable thousands of less fortunate New Yorkers to experience the magic of the holiday season in a way that is personal and from the heart.
Find out how you can get involved by visiting www.newyorkcares.org/winter-wishes.
