A group of employees from Bloomberg L.P. gathered downtown this morning to volunteer in the eighth annual Wrap-A-Thon.
Sponsored by the Partnership with Children, a social service agency for New York City youth, the group wrapped holiday presents donated by Gymboree, Hasbro, and NBC, which will soon be delivered to public schools around the city.
The gifts are not meant for all students. Rather, students living at or below the federal poverty level will receive them. This way, they can experience the thrill of receiving gifts during the holiday season, said Liz Roy, a spokesperson for the Partnership with Children.
Here are some photos from the day.
