Thanks to the kindness of one woman, thousands of kids at homeless shelters in NYC will experience more cheer this Christmas.

Every year, Carol Suchman makes an effort to purchase toys and donate them to homeless children during the holiday season. This year, however, she’s outdone herself by purchasing an entire toy store and donating its contents to thousands of homeless children in New York.

As NY1 News reports, Suchman was walking past the Hudson Party Store in her West Village neighborhood when she noticed a ‘Going Out of Business’ sign in its window. Intrigued by the idea of making Christmas a bit grander for thousands of kids this year, she contacted the store owner.

After negotiating a reasonable price, she purchased the toy store and turned its contents over to the city’s Department of Homeless Services (DHS).

Thousands of toys, stuffed animals, art and school supplies will be gifted to kids in homeless shelters this winter, all thanks to the generosity of a kind-hearted woman.

Said Antonio Rodriquez, the director of special events at DHS:
“I’ve been doing this for many years and we have many generous sponsors. But I have to say, that this is the first time anybody ever bought out an entire store and donated it.”
If anyone is at the top of Santa’s ‘Nice’ list, it’s Carol Suchman. Watch the video by NYW News here.
