[My daughter] told me it felt like walking on the Red Carpet, with everyone clapping. It made her cry, but happy tears....Thanks to all that were involved for making her (and all the other kids and moms) feel special...
Christmas in the City Party: Our signature event, an all-out extravaganza for families currently in shelters. 2020: CANCELED DUE TO COVID.
Over the years, we found that hosting a blow-out December holiday party just wasn’t enough for us. Today, we run other events for children and families experiencing homelessness or otherwise in need.
Monday Mania: Parents in need “shop” for free from over 25,000 gifts for kids, making the holiday season a happy and joyous one. 2020: CANCELED DUE TO COVID.
Halloween in the City: Trick-or-Treat comes to Boston’s inner city. 2020: CANCELED DUE TO COVID.
Thanksgiving in the City: Putting a holiday meal on the table for hundreds of families in need. 2020: CANCELED DUE TO COVID.

All 2020 Live Events Canceled
Due to COVID-19, all live events for 2020 are canceled. However, we are STILL helping shelters celebrate the holidays. Although we will not be holding our traditional public events this year, we remain steadfast in our commitment to helping Boston area families in need.
We are working directly with a number of the shelters to make sure that families experiencing homelessness will still have a joyful holiday season. So we are still in need of financial donations, as well as wishlists and other items for the families and for the shelters we’re working with.
You’ll find information on how you can get involved here. This is a work in progress! Over the next month or so, we’ll be supplying more detail on our needs, drop off locations, etc. And financial donations are always welcome.
