Boston Cares


A local mama wrote in to pass along word about Boston CaresFrosty’s Friends Program, a winter holiday gift-giving program through which volunteers give gifts to kids from Greater Boston’s emergency shelters, community centers, low-income housing programs, educational programs, and day care centers. This local mama and her husband have participated in the Frosty’s Friends Program for about five years (even before becoming parents); sometimes the requests are as heart-wrenchingly simple as asking for physical warmth in the form of a winter coat.

Click here to download the Frosty’s Friends application (due October 16, 2006). You will receive a hand-written letter from a child requesting a small gift (between $20-30 value). All you need to do is purchase the gift, and send it directly to the child’s agency.
