At officeworks we believe in the importance of giving back to our community both as a company and as individuals. That’s why we donate our time to support several local charitable programs every year.
Recently the officeworks team came together for a great cause that required us to get more than our hands dirty. MuckFest MS Boston is a 5K mud and fun run created to support people living with MS in the greater Boston area. 100% of funds raised by our team went directly to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. And speaking of funds, this year’s MuckFest MS Boston was a great success, raising over $600,000 to benefit the National MS Society, Greater New England Chapter.
This year several members of the officeworks team helped to create a day of fun for kids and staff at Harrington House and The Home for Little Wanderers. It was our pleasure to support such a worth organization which is helping so many kids and families.
The program at the Harrington House provides residential treatment by offering a safe, structured home-like, living environment. Children living at Harrington House participate fully in the community through school attendance and extracurricular activities. The program offers clinical services, health services, psychiatric services, educational assistance, milieu therapy, and case management services.
The Home for Little Wanderers provides a seamless continuum of vital programs and services for every stage of child and family development. For more than 200 years they’ve earned a reputation for doing whatever it takes to strengthen vulnerable families and keep children safe in their own communities, even when they don’t have family support.
This year we worked with Catholic Charities and during the holiday season we always participate in Toys for Tots with our own company-wide toy drive.
In the last three years officeworks has donated over $30,000 to local charities including Burlington Policeman’s Association, United Way, American Cancer Society, Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Boston Fire Fighters Association.
