Serve Children in Need at Mont Lawn City Camp's S. Bronx Toy Store

About this Opportunity

Mont Lawn City Camp is The Bowery Mission's program for children and youth living under the poverty line in New York City. Opportunities for enrichment and mentoring can play a critical role in helping children thrive in school and life. Quality programs support children's social and emotional development, helping them grow into adults who are healthy, grounded, and economically self-sufficient.

Mont Lawn City Camp will celebrate Christmas with His Toy Store on Tuesday, December 12 from 11am - 3pm and on Wednesday, December 13 from 3pm - 7pm at our South Bronx location.

  • Parents and guardians of program participants will have an opportunity to select age-appropriate toys and gifts for their children, as well as non-toy gifts such as coats, hats, scarves, and gloves, to ensure families have crucial needs met during the holiday season - particularly migrant families we have begun serving.
  • Families will also have the chance to have their gifts wrapped in festive paper, and enjoy holiday treats like cookies, coffee, and hot chocolate.

  • Checking in registered guests and providing them with gift tickets corresponding to the ages of their children
