Looking for an opportunity to give back?
The Boston Estate Planning Council and the Women's Initiative Committee can give you that opportunity.
Frosty's Friends provides gifts for kids from Greater Boston's emergency shelters, community centers, low-income housing programs, educational programs, and day care centers.
Each year, Boston Cares invites agency partners working with children to participate in their Frosty's Friends annual holiday gift-giving program. Agencies help kids write a letter to "Frosty" requesting the gift they are hoping for this holiday season (within a $25-$40 price range). Boston Cares collects these letters and distributes them to volunteers who play "Frosty" by purchasing the gift requested by the child. What makes this program so unique is that volunteers receive a very personal, original letter from a child, and in most cases the child receives the exact gift they requested.
We would like to invite you to participate. This year, we have committed to 100 requests from children at Greater Boston's emergency shelters, community centers, low-income housing programs, educational programs, and day care centers.
If you want to play FROSTY and purchase a gift for a child in need then call Denise Desautels at (781) 449-6800 x233 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive your letter and instructions of how to get your gift to your child.
When you contact Denise she will need to know the following:
- Your name
- Phone number
- Email address
- Mailing address (where to mail your child's letter)
I wish the best of the Holiday Season to everyone!
