After eight years of Lamacchia Realty collecting and delivering trucks loads of toys to the Children on Christmas Eve, we have to do it a little different this year due to restrictions due to the pandemic; toys cannot be delivered. Instead this year Children’s Hospital is creating a fundraiser to collect money so they can buy the toys for the kids. We are happy to announce the start of our Lamacchia 2020 Holiday Donation Drive to benefit the patients and siblings of Boston Children’s Hospital during the holidays. In place of toys, monetary donations will be raised for the hospital’s Child Life Specialists to purchase and deliver toys and video games for the 400 families that will be spending their holidays at BCH.
Lamacchia Realty has had the honor of supporting the number-one children’s hospital in our back yard with annual Toy Drives and participation in their Corporate Cups and NStar Walk. Over the years Lamacchia has raised well over 100,000 for the hospital!
“The thought of 400 children being in the hospital during the holidays is sad enough never mind without toys or video games to entertain them. The second I heard about this I said we are in! I know I speak for everyone at the Lamacchia Companies when I say we love helping the kids at the greatest hospital in the world. The company will kick it off with a $5,000 donation and we will match the winning team members amount raised up to another $5,000 on Christmas Eve which will be the last day for donations,” stated Anthony Lamacchia, Owner Lamacchia Companies.
Each person at Lamacchia can join the team and create their own donation page to raise money. The company is confident that this will drive participation and break a record for the amount of money raised on any single fundraising event the company has ever been involved in. The previous record was just under $35,000.
Join us by donating to our Lamacchia Realty Team and helping us put smiles on all the children and their families this holiday season. We are so grateful and thankful for your support and willingness to give back.
What will your generosity provide?
Every dollar donated goes to Boston Children’s Hospital’s Child Life Services Team, a team that is extremely vital to the hospital. Child Life specialists work to enhance a patients’ emotional and social growth during their stay at the hospital and in addition to helping normalize their new daily routine. They also provide immense support for patient’s families in helping them adjust to their child’s healthcare experience, as well as, educating and preparing them for their child’s journey.
The Child Life Services Team will ensure that the patients and their families receive the support they need and the resources they need. Your donation provides more than a new toy, it brings smiles, laughter, and healing, during the holiday season.
