New York resident Carol Suchman took her philanthropic spirit up a notch when she noticed a toy and stationary supply company going out of business in her West Village neighborhood.

Every year Suchman donates hundreds of gifts to homeless children and those less fortunate. This year, after seeing the “going out of business” sign in the store, she decided to go big.
