We have had an incredibly overwhelming response this year.
All 1,550 of our children have been assigned Santas, but there are still ways you can help.
We are happy to accept donations of new hats, scarves and gloves. In the cold winter months, children are always in need of winter accessories.
If interested in donating winter gear, please reach out to us for more details.
Santas receive a list with 3 Wishes for one New York City child whose family either lives in a homeless shelter or is in danger of being homeless. Santas do the shopping for their child’s 3 wishes, wrap the gifts, then drop them off at the Stockings with Care Santa’s Workshop (a borrowed raw space).
To be a Santa for a child in need, please fill out the form below and let us know how many children you wish to sponsor and any specific comments, such as budget limitations (the average cost of an entire wish list is $100-$150). You may also specify if you have an age or gender preference from newborns to teenagers and we will see if we can match you up.
*Please fulfill your child’s wish list and deliver gifts to the SWC Santa’s Workshop in midtown Manhattan (location TBD) on Thursday, December 12th or Friday, December 13th, 2019.
Many companies offer employee gift matching programs. Please be sure to take advantage if your office offers a program! Every gift makes a difference in a Child’s Christmas.
