Once again this year, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens partnered with New York Cares Winter Wish program to bring Christmas cheer to many of our families in need.
This year, New York Cares awarded CCBQ 300 children and 50 youth gift slots. In October, staff at both our Queens and Brooklyn Community Centers, Disaster Case Management program and clinics worked with children to write and decorate letters to Santa. Credit Suisse USA was chosen to be our “Santa Claus” and employees of this company filled our boys and girls wish letters. Gifts will be distributed by Santa’s elves (our Catholic Charities staff, volunteers and employees) during the next few weeks; bringing Christmas Joy to all the good little boys and girls of our neighborhoods!
