20 Years, 20 Friends: Frosty's Friends

Our 8th highlight in our 20 Years, 20 Friends series – all leading up to our 20th anniversary in 2024 – incorporates each of the participants in our annual Frosty's Friends program - a wonderful and generous group of supporters who ensure that our Achievers and their siblings receive holiday gifts during this very special season.

Congratulations to our Frosty’s Friends participants for being #8 in our 20 Years, 20 Friends countdown!

The holiday season can be a time of mixed emotions for families. Financial difficulties and other stressors can create a burden for caregivers, but our Frosty’s Friends program has played a key role in eliminating some of that stress to make the holidays brighter for our families.

Over the last ten years, Frosty’s Friends has ensured that every Achiever and their siblings receive a special gift as part of the holiday season. For youth, that means a special toy or other gift they’ve asked to receive. For caregivers, the Family Frosty’s program provides much-needed supplies to help them with everyday expenses. This program hasn’t been made possible by just one single organization or individual. Instead, the gifts come from a wide range of individual donors and organizations, all working together to ensure that the holidays are a special time for our Achievers and their families.

This year marked the first time since we added the Family Frosty's program that we've been able to give all of our families a Family Frosty's gift - 160 of them. We also collected over 400 gifts for our Achievers and their siblings. You can see the full list of this year's donors here, but we want to especially thank those organizations who were able to give 50 or more gifts toward this year's program:

  • American Tower (Longest Tenured Frosty’s Friends Partner)
  • Berkshire Partners
  • Black Financial Professionals and Accountants of Massachusetts
  • KPMG
  • Long Wharf Capital
  • Westfield Capital
