December marks the season of giving. At this time of year, we can’t help but be reminded that we never have to look far to find someone in need. Fortunately, we also don’t have to look far to find good Samaritans doing remarkable work to help others. One of our favorite local organizations is Christmas in the City (www.christmasinthecity.org). EMI and CITC share a 1989 birthday. When EMI began marketing for sales, CITC began helping 165 families in local homeless shelters by providing winter necessities, fulfilling homeless children’s Christmas wishes, and hosting a magical holiday party for needy families.
21 years later, CITC is supporting the Christmas wishes of 8,000 needy children and the magical holiday party has a guest list of 2,800 children who will trade their worries for playtime on December 19th.
EMI was honored to support the good work of CITC and — for the second year in a row — help to grant Christmas wishes by providing toys and by contributing our time and artistic talent to the creation of a Winter Wonderland at the Boston Convention and Exposition Center. We applaud organizations like CITC and we’re delighted to help CITC bring smiles to the children of our community. Happy Holidays to you and yours from the EMI elves.
