FPWA HOSTS ‘MIRACLE ON BROAD STREET’
FPWA operates one of the largest toy drives in New York City, and this year we committed to distributing more than 25,000 gifts, an enhancement of previous year’s efforts by more than 60%, to children and teens across New York City. In order to ensure the delivery of these gifts, FPWA hosted a three-day volunteer event called Miracle on Broad Street at its office in lower Manhattan located at 40 Broad Street, NY, NY. Nearly 200 volunteers organized and help pack more than 25,000 gifts to children and teens supported by FPWA’s network of member agencies across New York City.
Miracle on Broad Street is the cornerstone event of FPWA’s Lift Up NYC campaign, which launched in October this year, and seeks to harnesses NYC’s community spirit to lend a helping hand and give all New Yorkers the opportunity to rise. Each year, FPWA receives more than 50,000 requests for gifts for children ranging in age from 0-16.
Emmy Award-winning Eyewitness News and WABC-TV Reporter and News Anchor Bill Ritter joined FPWA’s inaugural “Lift Up NYC” Campaign as the official Media Ambassador and was on hand to help organize and pack gifts.
