We’re hoping to be back with our big party for 2023 – check back later in 2023 for all of our available in-person volunteer opportunities!
If you would like to stay involved by making a monetary donation, that would be wonderful! (No wonder we love you folks!)
Donate toys from our “Most Wanted List”. New, unwrapped toys from our general list which are not earmarked for any specific child can be dropped off at one of our drop-off locations (including our new location at 38 Bromfield Street in Downtown Boston). CITC – Most Wanted Toys – 2022 .
Donate smaller backpack and stocking stuffer items. CITC – Backpack and stocking stuffers for 2022 .
I love this organization because of its general mission to support the less fortunate among us - and to do so with a 100% volunteer base.
We’re 100% volunteer run, and volunteers are the heart and soul of Christmas in the City. We will be posting the available volunteer positions in mid-October 2023.
One of the greatest things about volunteering for CITC is that you get the reward of knowing that you’ve helped put joy on a child’s face - a direct result of your hard effort.
Boston-area corporations support Christmas in the City through making financial donations, by buying gifts for kids attending the party, by providing volunteer teams, and by holding toy drives. Bank of America has provided us with annual grants, and their employees have, over the years, signed up for hundreds of names from our wishlist, buying and wrapping toys for kids coming to the party. Liberty Mutual used a corporate leadership training event to build dozens of bicycles, and also wrote us a generous check. If your organization would like to help us out with wishlist gifts or a toy drive, please contact email@example.com.
There are many reasons we volunteer for this amazing organization. The biggest one is the kids. There are no words to explain the feeling when you see the joy and excitement on their faces when the doors open. It reminds us all of the impact we can have when we open our hearts to those in need.
Throughout the year, friends of Christmas in the City hold fundraisers to support our mission. The Seaport Hotel usually runs fundraisers for us in both December and during the summer. Felger and Mazz run an auction to benefit Christmas in the City. One young supporter has organized a Teddy Bear Tea. Parts per Million has run band nights for us.
Never thought I could run a marathon, but CITC does so much for so many less fortunate, I wanted to join their effort helping others.
We’re always looking for organizations that can donate goods and services. Categories include food and beverage donations for guests and volunteers; entertainment; activities for children; health-related services; toys and other gifts (including gifts for mothers). Each year, Charles River Apparel donates a generous supply of clothing. The Blue Man Group entertains at the party. Ana’s Taqueria helps feed volunteers. BU Dental provides dental checkups at the Party.
I've been volunteering since the first holiday party, and what I love most about Christmas in the City is the ability and diversity of the thousands of volunteers that make our events so successful.
The drop off locations will be listed in fall of 2023.
If you have something that you need to drop-off immediately, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll make arrangements.
