Volunteers of America's Sidewalk Santa's® and their signature chimneys are stationed across Manhattan on Fridays ringing their bells and raising money for the Holiday Food Voucher program.  In addition, donations can be made on line at  Rather than relying on a food pantry or soup kitchen, these vouchers allow individuals and families to shop for a holiday meal that is special to them, and respects the fact that they may have health, religious or other dietary restrictions.
