This winter, thanks to the incredible generosity of New Yorkers, New York Cares was able to help fulfill the holiday wishes of 32,000 disadvantaged kids and families."- NY Cares Website
At the P.S./I.S. 140 - The Nathan Straus School holiday party, Bank of America matched a volunteer with an individual child. Together they built graham cracker "gingerbread" houses. Then children and volunteers shared a pizza lunch and a reading from "The Gingerbread Baby" followed by Winter Wishes gift distribution.
