Every holiday season we recognize Mary Baker Eddy’s legacy of care for the community. This year we are collecting items on behalf of selected Boston area charitable organizations that support individuals in need. Eddy often donated to local children’s organizations and businesses. This year the Library, alongside The Mother Church Sunday School and The Christian Science Publishing Society, will collect new items for five impactful groups: School on Wheels Massachusetts, Casa Myrna, Project R.I.G.H.T Inc., and Toys for Tots MA.
Please join us by dropping off new, unwrapped items in the Library Gallery (enter at 200 Massachusetts Avenue) whenever we’re open. You can also contribute by visiting the Mapparium® on Sunday, December 8, and donating your admission to a representative from one of these organizations. All donations are tax-deductible. Look for online wish lists at mbelibrary.org or at the websites of the organizations mentioned here. For further information please contact Marie Palladino at [email protected]. Thank you—we wish you a wonderful holiday season!
