10th Annual DRIVE Boston Toy Drive & Holiday Event

Dear Friend,

I’m excited to kick off the annual DRIVE Boston Toy Drive and Holiday Event -- now celebrating our 10th year! A huge 'thank you' to 2018 lead sponsors Toy 4 Tots, The Boston Foundation, Massachusetts Jobs with Justice, M.A.M.L.E.O, and 1199SEIU for supporting this important work. Our community-focused event grows year after year, and we're incredibly proud of what we've accomplished together over the past decade.

Each year, DRIVE Boston hosts this family-friendly, multicultural holiday event to support children and families affected by incarceration and community violence. We feature fun games, music, free food, plenty of activities for children, face painting, balloon artists, and more. We do our best to accommodate every child with an age-appropriate toy, article of clothing, or other gift. Registration is required, whether in advance or on-site, to ensure we have a record of each family's participation.

NOTE: Your child(ren) must be present December 23 in order to receive a gift. Gifts will the be distributed in order of arrival, using a ticketing system.
