Some of these kids even asked for food, bedding and clothing.

About 114,000 students are homeless in the city’s public school system, and a recent report says one in 10 students don’y have a permanent home. The pandemic has made the situation worse.

So a group of moms came together to make the holidays cheerier by getting gifts for the entire school.
