Christmas in the City

Christmas in the City is a non-profit, 100% volunteer organization, whose mission is to support Boston's homeless families. What began as an effort to help make memorable holidays for those in need has expanded to year round programs to help families make the transition from homelessness to independent living. Saint Gerard Majella beckons you to join in and volunteer with us.  Here you will find the true meaning of Christmas.

This year’s event was a huge success. Thank you all to who were involved and helped. Check back in September for information regarding the 2017-2018 event.
