Governor Charlie Baker and Lt. Governor Karyn Polito strongly encourage all citizens to consider sending contributions to their favorite charities in lieu of gifts to the Governor and Lt. Governor.
For security reasons, please do not send perishable gifts —such as food, liquids, or flowers — to the State House. The State House is unable to accept cash, checks, bonds, gift certificates, foreign currency, or other monetary equivalents.
Additionally, items sent to the State House are often significantly delayed and can be irreparably harmed during the security screening process. Therefore, please do not send items of personal importance, such as family photographs, because items may not be returned.
While Governor Baker and Lt. Governor Polito appreciate your generosity, they request that instead you look to your local community for opportunities to assist your neighbors in need.
