6,000 children

“There are over 6,000 homeless children in Brooklyn and thousands more city-wide. While our efforts will not “solve” all of the issues related to homelessness, we believe that helping raise the spirits of families undergoing extreme stress can make a big difference,” said Marilyn Gelber, president of the Brooklyn Community Foundation. “Particularly in the holiday season, we want to bring some joy, hope, and help to homeless children who have been uprooted. We also hope to encourage people to Do Good Right Here, in Brooklyn,”
