Sad news for all friends of Christmas in the City family. On October 13th, Jake Kennedy died. The world is a lesser place without Jake in it - less kind, less joyful - but it's a more magnificent place because we had this good and great man among us for 65 years. His legacy lives on through his wonderful family, and through Christmas in the City.

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

Our Mission

Despite COVID, Our Mission Stays the Same! We’re a 100% volunteer organization devoted to helping Boston-area families experiencing homelessness and poverty. Although we will not be holding our traditional large public events this year, we will be bringing holiday “comfort and joy” to many families living in local congregant shelters, and to many other families in need of assistance for both Thanksgiving and Christmas/December holidays. WE ARE IN NEED OF BOTH TOY AND FINANCIAL DONATIONS, AND HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE AS WEL.

We're not quite fully back, but we're getting there!

100% goes to kids and families

We do 100% of everything with volunteers – 15-20 managing the mission year-round, and traditionally 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. We were hoping to be fully back in 2021, but with covid we're not. We do have a limited number of volunteer positions available.

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.
