The winter can be challenging for local families, as nearly thirty percent of children in the Boston metropolitan area live in low-income families. Many of these 30,000 children may not receive gifts or possess the winter clothes they need to fully enjoy this season. Since 1992, the Public Service Center has hosted the annual MIT Giving Tree to help provide gifts for these local children.
This year’s MIT Giving Tree will kick off before Thanksgiving Break, and the PSC will collect gifts from November 25th to December 16th. You can sponsor a child’s gift request individually or participate in a group with friends or co-workers. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
