December 22, 2019 - Volunteer Day
Christmas in the City

ASIS Boston Chapter is teaming-up with Christmas in the City for our Volunteer Day this year. You can volunteer for the Christmas in the City one-day holiday party, or you can donate a gift, for children in homeless shelters within the Great Boston Area. This celebration will mostly likely be the only meal and present these unfortunate children will receive.  

Founded in 1989 by Jake and Sparky Kennedy, Christmas in the City (CITC) is a 100% volunteer non-profit dedicated to helping relieve the impact of homelessness and poverty on Boston-area children and their families.

This year Christmas in the City will be held on December 22nd, 2019 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.

Annual Holiday Party  Since 1989 - when 165 children, parents in tow, were hosted at a Christmas party in Boston’s City Hall – the CITC party has grown into a spectacular event – food, gifts (including one chosen from each kid’s personal wish list), entertainment, rides, and a visit from Santa – for kids living in the area’s homeless shelters. In 2017, more than 4,000 children attended the party.

There are two options for ASIS Boston Chapter members to participate. Members can donate their time or donate a gift from the official list.

Option #1
Please sign up for this one-day event as a volunteer on 12/22/19 from 9:30am-4:30pm.  There are two positions needed (50) security posts needed throughout convention center and Shelter Volunteers hosting the guest parties (duties include helping your assigned shelter kids around the party with the meal, winter wonder land and gifts).

Option #2
If you can’t commit to donating your time but still want to help please donate a gift from the official Christmas in the City toy list on the link below. This toy will be delivered by Amazon directly to the Christmas in the City organizers.

If you cannot commit to the one-day event and but still want to help with this cause? Consider donating a toy: https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/YYV5KTL07HY4
