Welcome to City Santa!
Dreams are different for everyone, especially at Christmas. Some people dream of a new car or a Playstation. Others dream of a warm coat, blankets and three meals a day.
Each year City Santa answers letters from children in shelters for victims of domestic violence and homeless shelters in and around New York City. These letters are from children whose requests differ from the usual red wagons or bicycles. Their wants are simply the basic needs for food, clothing, shoes and blankets. And often their requests are not even for themselves but for their family members.
This is where City Santa steps in. Using the donations received, City Santa volunteers purchase the gifts, wrap them, fill the stockings, and write the individualized cards. They put everything in big clear Santa bags tops them off with a big red bow and personally delivers Christmas to as many families as possible each year.
