Christmas in the City

Description

Every year, Christmas in the City throws a spectacular, go-all-out holiday event for children living in homeless shelters. 

We have "adopted" the kids The Home for Little Wanderers brings to this annual event. And we need A LOT of volunteers to make their holidays special.

We'll need volunteers on Saturday, December 15th for prep work & gift-wrapping and volunteers on Sunday, December 16th to staff the party and make the day special for the 175 children from The Home. (Volunteers don't need to commit to both days-- you can sign up for one or the other, or both!)

Every child that attends the party gets a gift picked out especially for them off of their wish list, which means we need almost 200 gifts for The Home!

 

THE PREP: Saturday, December 15th

Saturday is all about setting the stage for a wonderful party on Sunday! We are recruiting Helpers to sort toys, wrap last minute presents,  and do other prep work for the big party.
THIS IS A FAMILY-FRIENDLY OPPORTUNITY! Children are welcome to participate (with an adult chaperone!)
Hours: 10 am to 1 pm
Location: Boston Convention & Exhibition Center

 

THE PARTY: Sunday, December 16th

You will be working in Life Science Cares teams to make the party as special a day as possible for the children and families from The Home for Little Wanderers. You will greet and register guests, help serve the food, help them experience everything the Winter Wonderland has to offer, help every child receive the gift from their wish list  and then, in the end, send them off to their buses with many warm memories. 
Volunteers must be 16+. 
Hours: 9:30 am-5 pm
Location: Boston Convention & Exhibition Center

 

BUY A GIFT: Now through December 14th

Every child that attends the party gets a gift picked out especially for them off of their wish list, which means we need almost 200 gifts for The Home! Consider committing to buying a gift and make a wish come true! 
We'll receive gift requests shortly after Thanksgiving and will needs the gifts to us by Dec. 14th.
