Volunteer

Christmas in the City is an all volunteer organization – there is no paid staff.

Thank you so much, all other volunteer positions have been filled but we are still in need of contributions.  You can donate or purchase gifts for kids by calling 617-542-6611, or by e-mailing contact@christmasinthecity.org.   If you would like to be put on the wait list for a volunteer position please email volunteer@christmasinthecity.org.

  1. All volunteers must pre-register. Accommodating walk-ins is very time consuming and makes it more difficult to use our volunteers effectively.
  2. School, church, scout groups etc. must provide a chaperone for every 12 members. (1:12 is required, 1:10 is preferred)
  3. Registration is by email address so if you have a group coming separately make sure they know the email address.
  4. All volunteers should bring their own snacks and beverages (there are plenty of water fountains) as CITC can’t guarantee that we will have enough food or beverage to feed all our volunteers.
  5. We have no secure place to put valuables so please leave them at home or in your car.
  6. The floor is concrete so wear sneakers or good supportive work boots.
