The Partnership for the Homeless

Bring Joy to a Child this Holiday Season

With your help, we can bring holiday cheer into the lives of children who are homeless.

Tonight, over 23,000 children will be sleeping in New York City homeless shelters.

At our annual Children's Holiday Party on December 8, more than 200 of these children will gather to play games, do arts and crafts, and meet Santa while their parents shop for presents. These “gifts from Santa” are only possible through donations and the generous spirit of our community. 

Please help us make this a truly special afternoon for these children by donating items from our Amazon Wish List or from the list below.
