Since 1989, bringing comfort & joy to Boston-area families experiencing homelessness and poverty.

Our Mission

We’re a 100% volunteer organization devoted to helping Boston-area families experiencing homelessness and poverty. From our holiday extravaganza for thousands living in shelters, to “playing Santa” for others in need; from Thanksgiving and Halloween events to our annual job fair and year-round help for families transitioning from homelessness, we’re here for those in need.

Presents given to families in need in 2022!

100% goes to kids and families

We do 100% of everything with volunteers – 15-20 managing the mission year-round, and 2,500 for events – making sure that 100% goes to those we support. Many volunteers were once kids at the party and come back to give back. Our event volunteers return again and again, and many tell us it’s the best day of the year.

I love helping families understand that no matter what life is throwing at you HOPE is not that far and can come in different shapes, forms and colors.
