Winter Wishes Gift Drive & Wrapping Party

Title: Winter Wishes Gift Drive & Wrapping Party
Location: Williams Club
Description: Children all over the city eagerly await the holiday season. It’s a great time to celebrate with friends and family, and of course, to get gifts. Unfortunately, many families in New York simply can’t afford holiday gifts. This year, the Williams Club will be showing some holiday generosity by teaming up with New York Cares as part of their yearly “Winter Wishes” gift drive. New York Cares hopes that the drive will bring gifts to over 35,000 needy children and teens by collecting their holiday gift requests, and then distributing these requests to volunteers who have pledged to do their part by purchasing, wrapping, and returning the gift.

This year the Club will receive a total of 35 winter wish requests, and we hope to have each one of these requests fulfilled by the Holiday Season. Club members who would like to volunteer will receive a gift request from a needy child or teen. Once all of our participants have gotten their gifts, they will be invited to a special gift wrapping party on December 8, featuring holiday music as well as free light holiday fare & festive libations. Don’t miss this wonderful chance to share holiday joy with someone less privileged, & let’s hit our goal of fulfilling 35 winter wishes! Free for volunteers (includes complimentary food & drink).
