Children’s Aid Benefits from 102nd New York Times Neediest Cases Fundraising Campaign

Email Twitter Facebook Stumble Upon Digg | More |

The Children’s Aid Society is proud to be one of seven New York City charities that benefit from the Neediest Cases Fund, the annual campaign begun in 1911 by the publisher of the New York Times. Every year since then, the Fund has provided relief for emergency needs, including food, clothing, rent and utilities.

As they work with families in high poverty neighborhoods across New York City, our staff members can apply for this special funding all year long on behalf of their clients. In many cases, the Fund helps stabilize families in times of crisis or supports children who lack basic necessities.

Through January, the Times will feature stories in print and online that highlight the struggles of families who got help from the Neediest Cases Fund.

You can read stories featuring Children’s Aid clients and staff through the links below.  You can donate to the Fund through The New York Times website.
