Christmas in the City has been in existence for over two decades! It is a totally, 100 percent, volunteer organization.  Christmas in the City organizes a spectacular party hosting over 3000 children and parents from homeless shelters from Boston and surrounding communities.  A banquet, live entertainment, a Winter Wonderland with games, rides, a petting zoo, kid friendly activities from the Museum of Science and the Children's Museum, a day in a stress free, safe environment made up the activities and each child received a personalized gift from Santa which the child had wished for. For our part, we will help prepare for that party.  In the past we have blown up thousands of balloons and created center pieces for tables.  Space is limited to 16 including chaperones.  This event is open to all middle school youth, their friends, and senior high youth as space permits. Youth from the Topsfield church have also been invited.
