The Boston Chamber of Commerce has placed a "sharing tree" in the lobby of the Boston Town Hall.
The tree is decorated with ornaments bearing the name and age of a child in the hopes that people will take the ornament, buy a toy, tape the ornament on a wrapped gift and place it under the tree. Gifts should be returned by Dec. 14.
The toys will be delivered to the children Christmas Eve.
The Chamber is hoping this activity will become an annual one.
