On Tuesday, November 29th, NYFC hosted the Ninth Annual “Wrap to Rap” holiday gift wrapping event. The NYFC Board, Friends Committee, and Youth Advisory Board were joined by 100 teens in foster care to wrap over 1,200 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 care, 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 included The Ainsworth, Paige Management Group, Scotch 3M, Sprinkles Cupcakes and Fiji Water. Volunteers were provided by Credit-Suisse, Tory Burch and Full Picture.
