Commonwealth Land Trust hosts a number of events to help residents feel connected to their community during the holiday season. In partnership with Toys for Tots, CLT runs a toy drive that provides gifts to the children living in our family housing. We also host a Halloween party for the children living in Lower Roxbury Apartments. Our guests come dressed as power rangers, witches, ballerinas, and ninja turtles, and enjoyed a buffet of pastries and candy!
At CLT’s supportive housing programs, case management staff organize parties to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, the December holidays, and New Year’s Eve. Social events like these foster a sense of community that is particularly beneficial for residents who lack strong familial ties and may feel depressed or isolated during the holiday season.
