In 1995 this organization which is based in Massachusetts was formed by a bunch of friends that got together and wanted to feel at home and carry on our Filipino Culture. These first members held the first Christmas party which served as the lauching point for the CMFAA. Since then we continue to host several key events centered around our food and culture, special events such as the May Fiesta, Independence Day Celebration, Halloween Party and Christmas Party. The association has supported community organizations such as the UMass Medicine Cancer Walk and the Local Massachusetts Food Bank. The CMFAA has more than 100 member families throughout New England . Through our members’ commitment, we are able to give back to the community, while providing a social and cultural experience unique to the Philippine community.
