Stockings with Care

Our annual holiday appeal to get your ho-ho-ho on for a very good cause — Stockings With Care — the nonprofit organization that gathers up Christmas wish lists from kids in NYC shelters and at-risk environments and then assigns Santas to take care of one or all of their three wishes. For most of the 1,500 kids involved, the presents from volunteer Santas are the only ones they'll get. All gifts are given to the parents or caregivers in time for the holidays, so the old Santa magic remains intact.

To be a Santa this year, fill out the short form here.

Want to help but short on time? You can make a tax-deductible donation and Stockings with Care's team of Santa Shoppers will hit the stores for you. Every penny of your donation goes to buying gifts for the children.

Tonight at Hudson Station Bar and Grill, 440 9th [34th/35th], it's Celebrity Bartending Night, a fundraiser for Stockings with Care. Join them from 7-11pm, ($30 cover in advance, $40 at the door) and hoist a cocktail prepared by cast members of House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, The Book of Mormon and many more.
