Seasonal Activities

Boston Housing Authority (BHA) Police Annual Turkey Drive

For over 15 years, BHA Police Division has worked with Boston College High School to provide Thanksgiving turkey dinners to low-income residents and families.

Annual Children’s Holiday Party

For many years, Public Safety staff organized and distributed toys during the holiday season to more than 3,000 resident children, ages 3 to 10, who live in our lowest-income households. Unfortunately, due to recent budget cuts, BHA has been unable to host this event in recent years. BHA Police also helped to provide new winter coats to low-income residents throughout the city in 2013.

Unity Days

BHA police officers attend the many Unity Day festivals that are held throughout the city's developments. These are backyard barbecues on a grand scale with food and entertainment provided to bring residents together in a spirit of friendship and cooperation.
