Tocci Proudly Sponsors Habitat for Humanity Awards
Habitat for Humanity’s motto is “A Hand Up, Not a Hand Out” as the organization partners with the public and private sector to provide affordable housing. Everyone benefits, from those who give to those who receive.
Tocci recently attended the 2012 American Dream Awards Breakfast, where perhaps the most inspiring moment of the day came as a young man whose mother is a new Habitat homeowner spoke of their journey from Ethiopia to Boston. In her time here, she secured a job as a housekeeper at a Boston hospital, pursued training and promotion to become a personal care technician and then faced instability as rising rent costs forced them into a one-bedroom apartment. For this family, home ownership now means having hope and a future and not just a furtive will to survive.
As a “Golden Ladder” sponsor of the breakfast, Tocci brought together several industry professionals, including Andy Reinach from Alexandria Real Estate Equities; Todd Finard of Finard Properties; Chris Yule from Yule Development; Joe Nevin of Bergmeyer Associates, Inc.; Anthony Leonard from Liberty Mutual; and Jeffrey Ganem of Leggat McCall.
At the event, Habitat recognized the contributions of Larry and Atsuko Fish as well as Fred and Rose Salvucci for their extraordinary generosity in making their newest project a reality: six units of housing on Bradeen Street in Roslindale.
