Holiday Gift & Book Drive

Union Settlement strives to make the holidays brighter for hundreds of East Harlem families in need.

Through our annual Holiday Gift Drive, we provide presents to hundreds of children ages 2-12 in our Early Childhood Education, Youth Services and Mental Health programs. This year has been especially difficult with the pandemic, and Union Settlement continues to work to make the holidays brighter for hundreds of families.

We rely entirely on support from corporate partners and supporters to make our gift drive possible. Thankfully, through this generosity we have received toys for each child in our programs – and now we aim to provide books as well!

Our supporters can get in the holiday spirit with family and friends by donating books found on our program participants’ Amazon Wish List. We ask that items be delivered no later than Friday, December 11th. All items should be sent to:

Union Settlement Holiday Gift Drive
237 East 104th Street
New York, NY 10029

Thank you for supporting Union Settlement’s work throughout the year and especially during this holiday season. We’re grateful for supporters like you who help us spread holiday cheer to the children of East Harlem!
