Help Us Share the Holiday Spirit with Franciscan Children’s!

Thank you to everyone who supported the Toy Drive this year!  We had so many presents from each of the offices and Franciscan Children’s was thrilled!  Again we thank you all for your support throughout the year! 

“Delivered the toys from our toy drive, then got a tour of the hospital with the CEO. They do some amazing work with a ton of Children. Most of them come in from Boston Children’s Hospital and need help with rehabilitation, this is an incredible place! THANK you to all who donated! And thank you to Craig MacDonald for rounding up all the toys from our offices and loading up our truck and my car!” – Anthony Lamacchia

We are happy to announce the start of our 2016 Toy Drive to benefit Franciscan Children’s. This is the 5th year in a row that we have run a toy drive for charity and we are looking forward to another big turn out! Families around the area have continued to provide an outpouring of donations and we have truly appreciated everything they have done to support the charities we love.

The Franciscan Children’s Toy Drive will run from Friday, November 25, 2016, to Sunday, December 18, 2016.  We will be delivering the toys on December 19, 2016. 

“After five years of doing this Toy Drive for Boston Children’s Hospital, I thought it would be nice to support Franciscan Children’s for all the great work they do assisting kids many of whom come from Boston Children’s in their rehabilitation.  I recently learned a lot about Franciscan and was extremely impressed. Please join us in supporting this great organization.” – Anthony Lamacchia
