Boston City Councilor Gabriela Coletta announced that she has partnered with Amazon to provide an in-kind community grant of $10,000 to the Charlestown Resident Alliance (CRA) for their 2022 Annual Toy Drive. “I am beyond grateful to Amazon for their generous contribution to the Charlestown community,” said Coletta. “The CRA is an incredible organization that leads the way in supporting the Bunker Hill Development.

Thank you for supporting our community!” The grant comes in the form of individual toys and thirty Amazon Fire Tablets for distribution at the event. “Amazon is thrilled to be able to deliver smiles and give back to the Charlestown community in this way. We hope this donation will make the holidays special for as many children as possible,” said Jerome Smith, Amazon’s Head of Community Engagement for New England.
