Woman Donates Entire Toy Store to Kids in Homeless Shelters
Carol Suchman has skyrocketed to the top of Santa’s “Nice” list.
The New York City woman donates toys to homeless children every Christmas, but this year her annual good deed is creating buzz all the way to the North Pole: To provide for kids in 2015, she bought an entire toy store.
Suchman was walking past a storefront in her West Village neighborhood when she noticed a “Going Out of Business” sign in the window.
After a bit of negotiating, she was able to purchase the store’s entire inventory — thousands of toys, stuffed animals, art and school supplies — and then turned everything over to the city’s Department of Homeless Services (DHS).
“I’ve been doing this for many years and we have many generous sponsors,” Antonio Rodriquez, director of special events at DHS, told NY1 News. “But I have to say, that this is the first time anybody ever bought out an entire store and donated it.”
