As we did last year, we’ll be working directly with a number of the smaller shelters, as well as with families who are in permanent housing but in need of some help around the holidays.
To our always generous financial supporters, due to a maelstrom of unfortunate events, including the pandemic and the sudden illness and death of our founder, Jake Kennedy, Christmas in the City has been delayed in completing and filing our tax returns with the IRS. This delay has led to the temporary suspension of our 501(c)(3) status. We are working diligently to rectify this situation immediately, and have our tax-exempt status reinstated as quickly as possible. However, until this process is complete, donations of cash or gifts to CITC are not considered tax deductible by the IRS or other applicable tax authorities. Although we welcome any such donations received during this period of temporary disruption, donors will not be eligible for a tax deduction related thereto. We apologize for the disruption this has caused, and sincerely thank you for your past, present and future support to help us reduce the impact of homelessness on Boston area children and their families. We look forward to updating you in the near future on our efforts in this regard.
