This week, the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles welcomed Boston Celtics forward Jared Sullinger to its new state-of-the art branch at Haymarket Center.

The Boston Celtic Specialty License Plate is the latest Specialty License Plate to be offered by the Mass. RMV
Similar to the Bruins and Red Sox special plates, individuals who sign up for the Celtics license plate will be helping charity. The new Celtics special plate purchases will benefit the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation, and more specifically Boston Children’s Hospital. The RMV will donate $28 for each Celtics plate issued. All such donations will help to support patient care and research at the medical institution.
The addition of the Celtics License Plate brings the total number of specialty license plates offered by the RMV to 19. In April of this year, Governor Patrick authorized the creation of a new Boston Strong License Plate with proceeds going to help The One Fund. The following is just a few of the other specialty plates available to Massachusetts drivers:
