BRAINTREE, MA–The Peabody Companies recently completed a winter clothing drive throughout their organization to benefit the Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program (BHCHP).
Employees throughout the Peabody Companies donated gloves, hats and undergarments to the organization, while the company itself matched the donations given by their employees by purchasing 20 warm and waterproof winter coats for men and women to accompany their team’s donation.
BHCHP was established in 1985 with a mission of providing or assuring access to the highest quality health care for all homeless individuals and families in the greater Boston area. Over 11,000 individuals are cared for by the BHCHP each year.
The Peabody Companies plans to further its relationship with BHCHP throughout the year by exploring various volunteer and service opportunities that Peabody staff can participate in, both individually and organized through the company.
“We were blown away by the phenomenal donations from the Peabody Companies,” said Tevin Montgomery, corporate relations manager for the BHCHP. “They have all made a tremendous impact by devoting time toward helping our patients, and our community in general.”
“The BHCHP is a fantastic organization, and we are proud to support them, especially as their work coincides in part with our own,” said Melissa Fish-Crane, principal and COO of the Peabody Companies. “We look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.”
