NYCP partners with individuals, schools, community groups, companies, and faith-based organizations to run special drives each year, such as our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive, or annual Larry Morales Toy Drive.  We also partner with individuals and organizations to host or coordinate other charitable drives to benefit our community year-round, such as our sandwich making, or toiletries drive.  You can help by coordinating a Food Drive or other charitable activity at your office, school, place of worship, or online.  See below a full list of ways to help or to see our full set of drives and charitable activities. You can also find specific resources for schools here.
