Lift Up NYC


Lift Up NYC is FPWA’s inaugural campaign that harnesses New York City’s community spirit to lend a helping hand and give all New Yorkers the opportunity to rise. We know through past studies that poverty can be reduced significantly when a dedicated group of
stakeholders come together to lift up our most vulnerable neighbors.

Lift Up NYC is your invitation to:

Grow our annual FPWA Toy Drive to deliver over 25,000 gifts in response to overwhelming requests from our city’s youth
in the hardest to reach communities during the holiday season.

Create a city where children and youth are well educated, families are adequately housed and fed,workers are employed at
a living wage, seniors have the means to live comfortably and stay engaged with their community, quality
health care is accessible to all, and neighborhoods are thriving.

New York City is the greatest city in the world, and sometimes all you need is a boost to make it.
