On Tuesday, December 2th, New Yorkers For Children (NYFC) hosted Wrap to Rap. At this annual event benefiting youth in foster care, NYFC Board and Friends Committee members joined over 80 teens in foster care to wrap 1,000 gifts for younger children in care as DJ D-Nice spun 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. Sponsors of the night included the NYFC Friends Committee, The Ainsworth, Macy’s and Paige Management.
