The thought of a child not having a bed at any time of year is heartbreaking, but not having one for Christmas is even worse. This Christmas, A Bed for Every Child, an initiative of the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless, wants to change that for 250 children. The Coalition is launching its 2nd Annual250 Beds for 250 Kids by Christmas campaign. This campaign builds awareness of A Bed for Every Child initiative while raising the funds necessary to donate 250 beds to children by Christmas, as part of a larger goal to provide 1,500 beds over the next twelve months.
To help reach our goal, we are so grateful to announce that we will once again be wrapping gifts at the CambridgeSide Galleria Mall. The Wrapping booth will be open beginning Friday, November 25th until the last present is wrapped on Christmas Eve. CLICK HERE for the complete schedule and shift availability.
Last year with the support of our incredible volunteers and donors, we were able to reach our goal. With your help, we successfully can do it this year, too.
If you are friendly, energetic and not afraid of a paper cut or two, this is a great opportunity to give back to your community!
If you are interested in volunteering for this event but have questions please contact Albenney at Albenney@mahomeless.org. Otherwise, just sign up here: www.tinyurl.com/giftwrapforkids
We would love to see you at the Mall this holiday season!
