The Bowery Mission has served homeless and hungry New Yorkers since 1879, when its neighborhood came to define the term “skid row.” Our children’s programs, called Mont Lawn City Camp & Mont Lawn Summer Camp, serve at-risk youth and began in 1894 by giving the children of recent immigrants the chance to escape the tenements in the summer.Today, The Bowery Mission is a results-oriented organization that is recognized as one of New York City’s most effective.
New York City has always been the epicenter of the American Dream. It’s a place of hope and opportunity. A place millions have traveled to in search of a better life. Unfortunately, the American Dream feels unattainable for many vulnerable New Yorkers, who are facing such obstacles as limited education, poor nutrition, low literacy, unemployment, and lack of basic needs. With 45% of New Yorkers living near or below the poverty line, the complexity and scale of problems can seem overwhelming. Many people want to step up and help their neighbors, but they feel that the issues are just too big. “There’s nothing I can do to have a real impact.”
The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
