Secret Snowflake

 

Secret Snowflake is the Mayor’s Office annual holiday gift-giving initiative, which mobilizes mayoral and private sector employees to answer hand-written letters from children in-need and provide crucial necessities, such as clothing, shoes and coats for the winter. Letters are written by/on behalf of children ages 0-16 who are in the foster care and shelter system. Our agency partners are the Administration for Children’s Services, which protects and promotes the safety and well-being of New York City’s children and families by providing child welfare and early care and education services; and the Department of Homeless Services, which aims to prevent homelessness when possible; provide temporary, emergency shelter when needed; and help individuals and families transition rapidly into permanent housing.

In 2016, over 900 volunteers served over 1,300 children through letter

We’re seeking new corporate partners for the 2018 Secret Snowflake initiative. Interested companies can contact Kylie Balogh, Public Private Partnerships VISTA, at kbalogh@Cityhall.nyc.gov.
