Last night, after work, twenty-five Partner’s Insurance Group Associates descended on us. They are on a mission to continue their commitment to help us build a more caring community.
At the beginning of winter, they raised over $22,000 to help with the build-out of our new space, by hosting a social in Fall River. Last night they helped us process a ton of donations, helping us substantially catch up on a backlog from the holiday season. Photos from their evening of work are here.
Our CEO Jim Stevens had this to say – ” What fine people these are. With over 40,000 South Coast children living in poverty, the need is overwhelming. After a long day at work, they spent their evening volunteering to help hundreds of local children be able to receive warm clothing, books and toys. We hear lots of companies ‘talk the talk’ but how many really ‘walk the walk?’ The Partners Insurance Group and Bay Coast Bank made a commitment to help and they are keeping their commitment in the most tangible of ways. They inherently understand that we are all in this together and that we are indeed Stronger Together. For us, they focus a bright and shining light on Corporate Citizenship and what is the best of us as a community. We are grateful to them beyond words”
