On December 16, 2017, Smart from the Start hosted its Party with a Purpose at the Michael T. Carmen Center for Child and Family Development. The annual event is a special opportunity for Smart’s supporters, families, and staff to join together in celebration of the winter holidays. Hundreds of local parents and children came in to take part in the festive activities, music, food and crafts in a celebration honoring holiday traditions and cultures from around the world.
Here at Smart, we believe every child deserves to feel special, especially around the holidays. Staff and volunteers worked tirelessly in preparation of the event to make sure that all Smart children had the opportunity to embrace the carefree magic that the holiday season brings. To recognize the true spirit of giving, Smart also asked that volunteers and supporters bring toys to contribute to our toy drive so that children could leave the event with something to remember the joy of the celebration.
Special thank you to all of our volunteers and supporters, including Boston Maccabi Rugby Club, Domino’s Pizza, Food Link, Old South Church, Rockland Trust, Save-A- Lot, Star Market, Stop & Shop, Toys for Tots, and Trader Joe’s.
