In New York City, more than 60,000 people sleep homeless every night—including 23,000 children. This Christmas, instead of packing up shoeboxes to ship far away, how about sending care packages to NYC’s most vulnerable? Rauschenbusch Metro Ministries offers relief, compassion and hope to our housing-insecure neighbors. With your generosity, we can share your love with the people we meet every day. Pack filling snacks (like granola bars, juice boxes, peanut butter crackers) and basic new clothing items (like winter hats, gloves, underwear, socks). Send us your carefully-packed care packages, and we will share them with those who are searching for an expression of hope and love this season.

How to Participate: 

Have your friends, family, or church pack their gifts in a drawstring bag (our neighbors appreciate these bags).

Collect all care packages and ship them together in a cardboard box to:
Metro Baptist Church
Operation Hope for HK
410 W 40th Street
New York, NY 10018

We will receive your Hope for Hell's Kitchen care packages December-March, and we will distribute them as we receive them.  Thank you for partnering with us to provide care to our neighbors this season!
