Woman Donates Entire Toy Store To Children In Homeless Shelters
November 23, 2015
Every Christmas, Carol Suchman donates toys to some of New York City's poorest children. But this year when she walked by a shuttered toy store with a "Going out of Business" sign in the window, she had an idea.
"When I saw this toy store, I just realized I could do it on a grander scale," Suchman told NY1 News.
She contacted the owner and proposed buying everything inside.
"We talked and negotiated and bought the entire toy store," she said.

By store, she means thousands of toys and stuffed animals, and boxes of school supplies too.
She bagged everything up and donated it to the New York City's Department of Homeless Services just in time for the holidays.
"I've been doing this for many years and we have many generous sponsors," Antonio Rodriquez, director of special events at DHS, told NY1 News. "But I have to say, that this is the first time anybody ever bought out an entire store and donated it."
