To our NYCCHP friends and family:
We hope that you are well, and that you and your loved ones are safe during these uncertain times.
We have created a special fundraiser because the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the stress on these less fortunate New Yorkers — homeless families with whom we have been working for the last 18 years.
23,000 homeless children and their families living in shelters of the five boroughs of New York City are suffering. They are running out of much needed essential provisions, including basic hygiene and sanitary products as well as the educational and recreational items. They need help now. Once again we are asking our NYCCHP family to join us in helping these children in need!
All of us are experiencing the draining and socially isolating effects of the lockdown, but some of us are fortunate to have the comfort of our own homes and many distractions — from games to technological devices — to sustain us. But imagine being confined to just one room in a shelter, and without anything to keep you occupied? The shelter supervisors, many of whom you know, have reached out to us — they are overwhelmed and working hard to keep the children safe and engaged while they take a chance with their own health.
In keeping with the original mission of NYCCHP — to help better the lives of the homeless children of New York City — we are asking you to donate now so that we may provide the children with much needed supplies, including essential provisions, sanitary and basic hygiene products, and educational/recreational items.
100% of all donations will go directly toward the benefit of children living in shelters. And, any amount is appreciated.
We thank you for your consideration and we hope you and your family remain safe and healthy during this uncertain time.
