Christmas in the City: Holidays for Homeless Kids
Back in 1989, Jake Kennedy took on a very ambitious project. Along with his wife, Sparky, Jake Kennedy set out to provide holiday fun for Boston's homeless children. Now, the event has grown into a service for all of Boston's homeless children, from every shelter in the city, and out into the suburbs. The kicker? It's all done on a volunteer basis.
Emily Rooney spoke with Jake Kennedy about Christmas in the City, which takes place December 23rd and 24th each year.
