About

Each year, Christmas in the City brings holiday magic to thousands of Boston-area kids and their families – kids and families who’ve been experiencing the uncertainty of homelessness and the stress of poverty. Our annual party for those living in homeless shelters is a spectacular, go-all-out holiday event that many kids tell us is the best day of their lives. We also “play Santa” to thousands of other children who live in poverty, and provide assistance throughout the year to help families successfully transition from homelessness to independent living.
  • Making kids smile since 1989
  • 100% volunteer-run non-profit
  • Annual holiday party for thousands of homeless kids
  • Holiday gifts for thousands more
  • Helping kids and their families throughout the year


Events
