Lamacchia Realty Holiday Give Back Toy Drive for Boston Children’s Hospital
Update December 30, 2014: it was a HUGE success! To see pics of Anthony and Adam delivering the toys, visit our Facebook Page.
We’re happy to announce for the third year in a row we’re kicking off the holiday season by hosting a toy drive for a charity we really believe in: Boston Children’s Hospital.
Now Extended! Through Monday morning, December 22nd, our company headquarters will serve as a drop off center for toys for Boston Children’s Hospital. We hope you’ll join us in making this year’s Toy Drive our best yet!
Boston Children’s Hospital has created a “Toy Store” for their inpatient families that will be filled with generous donations from people like you giving during the holiday season. Inpatient families who aren’t able to leave the hospital are invited to shop in the store for free – for their hospitalized child, as well as siblings! Along with donations of books and toys, Boston Children’s Holiday Store uses wrapping paper, ribbon, tags, tape and bows to re-create the holiday experience.
We will load up our company vehicles and deliver all the donated toys to Boston Children’s Hospital in time for this special event.
You can help by donating much-needed toys for children who have to spend the holidays in Children’s Hospital. Simply drop off new, unwrapped toys at our corporate headquarters in Waltham, Massachusetts or we will pick them up for you to give to Boston Children’s Hospital.
Please drop off brand new, unwrapped toys at the following location:
411 Waverley Oaks Road, Building 3, Suite 311 Waltham, Massachusetts, 8:30AM – 5:00 PM.
Can’t Get to Waltham?
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for one of our agents to pick the toys up for you (within Eastern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire) to bring to Children’s Hospital.

If you can’t donate one of these items below, gift cards in any amount from stores such as Target, Best Buy, or Toys R Us, Barnes and Noble, Walmart, and Amazon are also accepted.
Boston Children’s Hospital cannot accept used toys, and because of the many varied dietary restrictions they are unable to accept gifts of food.
