Holiday Cheer

What a fantastic holiday season at Partnership with Children!
Every December we collect gifts and warm clothing for our neediest families. This year we received an over abundance of gifts for every age group. Through the TODAY Show’s Charitable Gift Drive we received gifts from Hasbro and Gymboree among others, as well as from companies that ran their own drives including New York Life, Bloomberg and Prudential. We had little space left in our office with all the boxes and bags of toys and clothing stacked up everywhere, but we still managed to squeeze in teams of volunteers from Bloomberg, Starwood Hotels, High Water Women, and other individuals to wrap up the gifts before we delivered them to the families.

Despite all the lifting, lugging, and stacking involved in the gift drive, at the end of the days it's incredible to involve other New Yorkers in helping Partnership with Children's students.
