Thank you for granting wishes!

Registration for Winter Wishes 2023 is now closed. Thank you to the hundreds of caring New Yorkers and generous corporations who helped fulfill more than 20,000 letters. If you're still looking to spread joy this holiday season, consider the gift of warmth. Just $25 keeps 10 New Yorkers warm and provides essential programs that help break the cycle of poverty.
