Christmas in the City (CITC) is a 100% volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to helping relieve the impact of homelessness and poverty on Boston-area children and their families.
Boston’s Christmas in the City runs non-denominational holiday events for children and families experiencing homelessness and poverty, and throughout the year is always on the lookout for ways to help those in need. Founded in 1989, Christmas in the City is a 100% volunteer organization with a strong ethos of “community caring for community.” Read our story »
We’ve had a tremendous roster of supporters over the years who have generously provided us with volunteers, goods and services.
While we do many things, the heart of Christmas in the City – and its roots – is with the annual party for families experiencing homelessness. A number of years ago, our wonderful supporter Vikki Marinescu, who is one of the many grateful patients Jake has helped at KBPT, took pictures at the party and compiled them into this extraordinary video. If you’re wondering what makes Christmas in the City tick, this is it!
