Sincerest thanks to First Look Bath and the employees of Madison International Realty for providing dozens of new coats to the participants of Children of Promise, NYC! As a result of their generosity, every child in the program received a new jacket in the size and color of their choice. The children are thrilled to face the cold weather in their brand new style.
CPNYC would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all of our incredible partners who collaborated with CPNYC for our annual Holiday Celebration. With the support of Paula Fendall Christmas Giving, W Girls, FPWA, Jack and Jill Foundation Brooklyn Chapter and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, we were able to distribute personalized gifts to over 175 children and families.

Finally, CPNYC would like to thank all of the volunteers who spent hours wrapping presents, decorating the facility, painting nails, preparing for the event and working one-on-one with our participants. Happy Holidays to all!
