Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
In a just few days, kids all over New York City will wake up early and run out of their bedrooms looking for presents. Many of those boys and girls will happily find gifts because of the good people at Hope for New York who support 40+ faith-based, anti-poverty organizations across the city (remember Father's Heart?). Earlier this month, they opened several pop-up toy stores under the banner "His Toy Store." Their goal is to provide presents to families in "deep financial need." In this episode, Katherine Evans walks me through how His Toy Store works and recounts some of her fonder memories of the program.
