Each year, New York Cares collects and reads tens of thousands of letters from hundreds of our Community Partners. After careful consideration, each wish is matched with a volunteer who will purchase and send their gifts directly to our Community Partners. These 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.
