Christmas in July: Donation Drive for Big Brothers Big Sisters

by Jenn Robertson

Following in the footsteps of the Hallmark Channel, SMPS Boston is celebrating Christmas in July – and August! Historically, the SMPS Boston Holiday Party has held an annual Holiday Clothing Drive Competition for donations to the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent cancellation of the Holiday Party, those donations were put on hold – until now! Between now and August 13, SMPS Boston will match every dollar our community donates, up to $1,000.

How to donate:

Go to and choose your donation amount. Then, send proof of your donation (a receipt, screen shot, etc.) to [email protected], and the chapter will make a donation of the same value.
