‘Tis the Season for Giving!

Nothing is better than seeing kids’ faces light up during the holidays while unwrapping presents. This December, LFC Boston is sponsoring a Toy Drive for Action for Boston Community Development (ABCD).

Established in 1962, Action for Boston Community Development, Inc. (ABCD)
is Boston’s official anti-poverty agency and services over 85,000 low-income
Greater Boston residents. Their annual toy drive has been in existence for over 30 years and during that time they have been able to donate toys to thousands of underprivileged children in the Boston area.

The toy drive is an important yearly effort that allows us to bring a little
extra cheer to many families who otherwise may not have had the financial
ability to provide for their families at this very important time of the year.

The launch of our toy drive will be at the upcoming LFC Boston Ugly Sweater Holiday Party on Dec. 6 at the Phoenix Landing, 5-9 p.m. You will learn more details about the Toy Drive and select a child’s wish list at this event.

Toy donations will be accepted during the following LFC matches:

  • Tue, Dec. 9 vs. Basel
  • Sun, Dec. 14 vs. Manchester United
  • Wed, Dec. 17 vs. Bournemouth

If you are unable to get to the Phoenix Landing but are interested in sponsoring a child, please contact Kristine McKenna, LFC Boston’s Charity and Outreach Coordinator at KristineMcKenna@LFCBoston.com.
