The holidays are an especially challenging time for low-income families in our city, so we’re excited about the opportunity to show them Christ's generosity this month through Hope for New York’s His Toy Store.
His Toy Store is Hope for New York's Christmas toy drive for families in need. In November, people like you donate new toys, and then Hope for New York works with churches and volunteers to host 12 His Toy Stores throughout the city in December. At these stores, parents can shop for toys at no cost and are also able to connect to ministries for care and resources.

One year has passed since Hurricane Sandy hit New York City, wreaking havoc and destruction on neighborhoods along our coast.
Based on rough estimates by the City, we believe that hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers were displaced from their homes following Sandy. Many more experienced power outages, leaving them without running water, refrigeration, or heat for days or weeks.

Daniela Italo, a two-year veteran of our Annual Charity Bike Ride, says that the Charity Bike Ride (this year on Sept. 21) is her favorite HFNY event of the year.
"Biking through communities in NYC is one of the big ways that God changed my heart toward this City," Daniela says. "And what could be better than a challenging, but beautiful, ride with your NYC community, all supporting Team HFNY?"
