Our Annual Toy Drive is quickly approaching! Save the date and see you November 17, 2016 from 6-9 PM at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers.
VVA will be raising funds and asking for toy donations for families and children in HELP USA’s homeless housing to help them celebrate the holiday season with the joy of gifts and holiday meals. VVA, Toy Drive sponsors, and patrons from the commercial real estate and construction industries will attend the benefit event.

Last year, VVA and HELP USA raised over a quarter of a million dollars for families living in HELP USA’s homeless housing in New York City and delivered toys to nearly two thousand children living in the shelters for the holiday season. Last year we also saw a rise in sponsorship and attendance, with nearly five hundred of the most prestigious firms in the construction and real estate industry attending to network and give back to the community.
