Best of Brooklyn: Holiday Angel Project enters 5th year

For a fifth consecutive year, Gina Argano is on a mission to fulfill the holiday wishes of children in need across the borough.



Argano, who founded the Holiday Angel Project, collected letters to Santa from children in homeless shelters across the city.



Through the power of social media, "angels" then adopt the letters and help her fulfill her mission.



"The word just keeps traveling and traveling. It's just like a ripple effect of people who want to take part in this amazing project," says Argano.



Her apartment is filled with donated gifts that will be delivered to children during a special celebration later this month.



"Every part of me smiles, and it's something that stays with you far longer than the holiday season. You think about these children all year long," says Argano.
