Most of us have an awful lot to be thankful for, including the ability to see that our families are well-fed. We want to make sure that every family can put a Thanksgiving dinner on their table.
The Saturday before Thanksgiving, Christmas in the City becomes Thanksgiving in the City. On that day, we distribute hundreds of food baskets to families in need. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and corporate supporters, we’re able to fill those baskets with all the fixins’: turkey, potatoes, stuffing, gravy, veggies, as well as some stock-the-larder items.
Because of COVID, our Thanksgiving in the City event for 2020 has been canceled.
Those in need may be able to find assistance through the Salvation Army.
Another resource is the Greater Boston Food Bank. They don’t provide food directly to individuals, but they partner with a number of food assistance providers throughout Eastern Massachusetts. You can find a local organization that works with the GBFB by entering your zip code here.
I’m from a large family, but we never went without. To make sure that those in need are taken care of, especially around the holidays, is an honor and a joy.
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.
