Each year we make a holiday donation in the name of our many clients and associates. This donation represents our goal to give back some of the successes we have enjoyed and to support just a few of the countless worthy organizations whose efforts help make the world a better, healthier, more caring, and more peaceful place for us all to live. Please join us in supporting these and other charitable organizations. 2015: Our support this year goes to Care Dimensions, the largest hospice organization in Massachusetts. Care Dimensions offers a continuum of clinical care for adult and pediatric patients with advanced and life-limiting illnesses, and provides support for their families and caregivers. 2013: This year, we have begun a relationship with Cradles to Crayons, through a combination of donations and employee volunteering. Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive - at home, at school and at play. We can only hope that our contribution, combined with the efforts of countless others, will make a difference. 2012: Our support in 2012 goes to the American Red Cross in their relief efforts for the individuals and families impacted by Hurricane Sandy. 2011: We are pleased to continue our tradition of making a holiday donation in the name of our many clients and associates.  Thank you for helping us to renew our support for Camp Sunshine, a retreat for children with life threatening illnesses and their families.
