NEW YORK — A Manhattan woman took the spirit of giving this holiday season to a whole new level. Susan Suchman bought an entire toy store and donated everything inside to those in need.
According to KTLA, Suchman donates to needy children in New York City every year and this year was no exception. While walking by a toy store for rent in the West Village, she got the idea to buy the entire store and donate the toys inside to charity.
“When I saw this store, I just realized I could just do it on a grander scale for this one year,” Suchman said.
Suchman bought the store, packed up the thousands of toys and stuffed animals — as well as boxes of school supplies and donated it all to the city’s Department of Homeless Services.
Thanks to Suchman’s generosity, thousands of shelter children will have at least one present to open this year.
“I know everyone could use a gift around the holidays,” Suchman said.
