The First Lady of New York City, Chirlane McCray, is encouraging New Yorkers to give back this holiday season.
This year, New Yorkers have already donated $56 million to the Mayor’s Fund to help essential workers, small businesses, hourly workers, restaurants, and healthcare providers! However, we can’t stop there. During our first every Holiday Lite Show, Lady McCray encouraged New Yorkers to help even more New Yorkers through the More than a Roof Campaign.
The More than a Roof Campaign was created to aid survivors of domestic violence who are living in NYC shelters; to help ensure LGBTQ youth have access to stable and supportive homes; to give New Yorkers who have been involved in the justice system housing-related resources as they re-enter their communities; and to support other vulnerable New Yorkers who need shelter or help staying in their current home.
McCray explains that home is where people find solace, comfort and safety, and every New Yorker should be able to feel safe this year. To donate please click here.
