Holiday Gifts of the Heart

Every holiday season, Volunteers of America-Greater New York holds several drives to make the holidays special for the people we serve. From giving toys to children who are homeless, to helping families put food on the table, and giving warm and wonderful presents to the elderly, our Holiday Gifts of the Heart holiday campaigns brighten the season for our neighbors in need. As a generous supporter, you can make the difference in the lives of these individuals and families.

For more information about any of these campaigns, contact azibell@voa-gny.org.

    Toys for the Holidays

    "Toys for the Holidays" is our holiday gift drive for children living in our homeless and domestic violence shelters and in our youth group homes. We also make sure the preschoolers at our Early Learning Center in the Bronx receive gifts as these children and their families are also in need.
