Holiday Express Train Rides Again!
One more announcement for today. This one fun:
It may still be a bit warm outside, but the VNA of Boston is looking forward to snow covered lawns, red noses and Holiday cheer! On Sunday, December 5th we will once again board the Holiday Train to the North Pole for the 17th Annual Holiday Express Train Ride and would like to invite you to join us for this magical journey!
Each year, more than 2,000 children, parents and grandparents from Malden, Melrose and Reading chug along on a magical train ride to the North Pole. This cherished annual community event features the much-anticipated reading of The Polar Express by elves from the North Pole, gifts and treats, and Santa himself.
If you would like to be involved with the Holiday Express Train Ride, please consider placing an ad in the Coloring Book which is distributed to each child and kept as a keepsake by parents. You could use this opportunity to advertise your business or feature a coupon or sales event. The goal of the event is to raise vital funds for our Maternal Child Health and Charitable Care Programs, which provide home and community-based care to the most vulnerable and needy children and their families in the areas of maternal child health, infant and pediatric care, early intervention for developmental delays and social work support for at risk families. Please call the Development Department at (617) 886-6460 with any questions or to learn more about how you can get involved in this wonderful annual tradition.
