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. The Urban Mosaic Center for Social Justice also participated in the event, providing a special holiday meal for our students. 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!
This year CPNYC is celebrating the holiday with a festive carnival complete with arts and crafts, face painting, a bounce house and haunted classroom. Special thanks to Madison International Realty and their employees for providing all of our program participants with fabulous costumes! From Bat Girl to Wonder Woman to Flash to Superman, the children had a truly imaginative and fun-filled holiday.
Sincerest thanks to the District 8 employees of T.J.Maxx for dedicating their afternoon to volunteering in our after-school program and decorating our balcony doors for Halloween.
Thank you to the New York City Department of Corrections for participating in a Day of Service at Children of Promise, NYC.

Our sincerest thanks to OppenheimerFunds for choosing to partner with Children of Promise, NYC for a day of service.

Children of Promise, NYC (CPNYC) was thrilled to participate in Viacommunity Day for the 6th consecutive year. On Friday morning, April 28th, we welcomed dozens of Viacom employees to our headquarters in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Thanks to their efforts, CPNYC's front entrance is now adorned with cheerful plants, the cafeteria is renewed with fresh coats of paint and the outdoor playground is brightened with spring color. This beautification will have an immediate impact on the hundreds of children and families who walk through our doors on a daily basis.
