On Tuesday, November 29th, New Yorkers For Children will host their 9th annual Wrap to Rap event to benefit youth in foster care in New York City. The NYFC Board and Friends Committee will be joined by over 100 teens in foster care to wrap 2,000 gifts for younger children in care as a DJ spins hip hop and holiday classics.
The wrapped presents will be distributed by the Administration for Children’s Services to children in foster care throughout New York City. In addition to providing much needed holiday gifts for children in need, Wrap to Rap also serves as a reminder to teens in foster care of the importance of volunteerism and giving back to their communities. This year’s sponsors include: The Ainsworth and Paige Management.
