The Healthcare Studio of Margulies Perruzzi has always felt that, as long as we’re going to throw a party – we may as well use the opportunity to help out a health care organization that is providing an amazing service. On October 11, we hosted a fundraising roof deck party for Home Base, a behavioral health agency that provides critical care to veterans suffering with PSTD and TBI. The Home Base Leadership and Veteran Outreach Coordinators were on hand to raise awareness of the program and in just three short hours, we managed to raise over $15,000! We all went home smiling that night!
For a repeat year, a team of Margulies Perruzzi colleagues and friends participated in “Fight United” on February 9th. We committed to participating in a 2-hour intense boxing conditioning training session as well as fundraise for a great cause. The United Way of Mass Bay runs a number of great programs specifically benefiting our local youth; the Fight United event is held to specifically support these programs. We completed the event and had 2 of the top 3 overall fundraisers as part of our team!
Caroline came to our office to help us make these kits for the Boys & Girls Club to learn about plant life cycle for Earth Day. Building Impact promotes a number of philanthropic activities, benefiting many outside organizations and underprivileged city communities, ranging from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education to providing encouraging letters and emergency paracord bracelets for US troops abroad. They really do a great service helping bridge the gap by bringing to us a variety of opportunities to help us give back. Additionally, their staff is beyond friendly and accommodating. We love working with Building Impact!
Margulies Perruzzi teamed up with Heading Home to help a mother and her son move from a shelter to a permanent situation. We got an understanding of what items they would need for their new apartment and purchased everything from pillows and picture frames to a TV stand, a new ceiling fan, and food to fill the kitchen. Our team went in on a Saturday morning and spent about 6 hours cleaning and decorating the apartment. Upon arrival the family was thrilled to see their new home!
