New York Cares Winter Wishes

"The holiday season is a special time of year, a time filled with excitement and anticipation. Sadly, many families do not have the means to purchase even the most basic holiday gift.

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.
