Light Up The Holidays

In the wake of the tragedy this past Friday, I find myself amazed as hundreds of toys and gift cards pile up in our conference room. There is a lot that is wonderful in this world and it’s great to be reminded of it. With the gifts that you see in this picture, more than 750 children and adults we serve who might otherwise have gone without much for the holidays will now feel the caring of their neighbors. Thank you to the many people who dropped off gifts today (Mercer, The Roxbury Latin School, Needham Bank, Ivantage Health Analytics) and a special thank you to the children at Our Lady’s Academy in Waltham whose special assembly this morning reminded us of the resilience of children.
