While all of us flock to Park Street to celebrate Christmas, often we forget to pay attention to the tons of children there, either working, selling caps or simply begging. This Christmas join us in our cause and experience the joy of bringing a smile on a child’s face. Because children need to celebrate Christmas eve, not work on it. The gifts will be packed and ready, all you need to do is drop by and give a gift to a child.
