We invite the PS 9 communitiy to support of the Coalition for the Homeless’ annual Holiday Toy Drive. We will be collecting new, unwrapped toys to bring smiles to the faces of girls and boys who will spend the holidays in New York City homeless shelters. This year, the Coalition for the Homeless’ goal is to reach 9,000 toys!

We are encouraging companies to use our Amazon Wish List as a guide, since we update it weekly with the most needed toys. You can find it here: www.coalitionforthehomeless.org/toy-drive-wishlist. (And, make sure you’re using PS 9’s website (www.ps9brooklyn.org) as the starting-point when you shop on Amazon. Amazon tracks purchases made using PS 9’s Amazon Button (on the home page) and each time you make a purchase using the steps below, PS9 PTO will get a contribution up to 3-8% of your Amazon purchase.)

We are aiming to collect as many toys as we can in during the week of December 11th, with the drive officially ending December 15th. This way the Coalition will have time to sort and send the gifts to the shelters before the holidays.

Look for the Coalition’s donation box in the lobby outside the front office. Thank you for your generosity and support!
