Woburn, MA (April 20, 2021) In honor of National Volunteer Week, a group of Tocci volunteers teamed up with Cradles to Crayons (C2C) to support local children in need.
Eleven Tocci volunteers returned to The Giving Factory in Newton, where donations are collected, sorted, and distributed to local disadvantaged children. The Tocci team split into two workstations: one group organized clothing by size, and the other cleaned and sorted shoes and boots.
Childhood poverty is a shockingly relevant and pressing need that spoke to Tocci’s volunteers. According to C2C, more than 277,000 Massachusetts children, 12 years or younger, live in low-income homes or are homeless. The average U.S. family with two adults and two children, live on less than $24,000 a year. The Tocci team was extremely motivated to support this initiative and help children acquire essentials like clothing and school supplies.
Volunteerism is a key value at Tocci, with efforts led internally by their Wellness Committee. Members meet monthly to identify local and global giving opportunities and maintain relationships with local non-profit organizations. This allows employees to partake in multiple volunteer events a year, while also providing the opportunity to spearhead causes they are passionate about. Tocci has developed many lasting relationships through these efforts, leading to annual volunteer events with Boston Building Resources, Project Hope, Straight Ahead Ministries, and the Woburn Council for Social Concern.
The Tocci team is looking forward to their 3rd annual shelter clean-up day at Project Hope in Roxbury this May.
