    Santa is getting a helping hand this year thanks to philanthropist Carol Suchman. Although Suchman, a New Yorker, has been donating birthday presents to city children in foster care for the past five years, she was inspired to do more when she walked past a closed toy and stationery store with a “for rent” sign in the window. STORY: Why These Parents Give Half Their Salary — $128K — to Charity Each Year Suchman had purchased many gifts for foster children at the Hudson Party Store, which was now shuttered but still loaded with toys on the store’s shelves. Volunteers from the organization helped Suchman sort and bag up the toys, which will be distributed throughout homeless shelters across the city over the holidays.
