CHR's charity for the month of February is The American Heart Association, the nation's oldest and largest voluntary organization devoted to fighting cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Before the American Heart Association existed, the best case scenario for those diagnosed with heart disease was bed rest, but a certain group of physicians and social workers believed it didn't have to be that way.
CHR's charity for the month of January is Rosie's Place, a sanctuary for poor and homeless women that offers emergency and long-term assistance to women who have nowhere else to turn.
We are awestruck with the generosity from our residents and employees. After an unprecedented food drive for the Pine Street Inn last month, we were blown away once again with our annual Toys for Tots drive.
CHR's charity for the month of December is the Pine Street Inn, a non-profit Boston based organization helping the homeless in the greater Boston area.
The charity of the month for November is Globe Santa, an organization which delivers holiday gifts to local children in need throughout Greater Boston.
The Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation in Pawtucket, RI is CHR's October charity of the month.
If you've been following us on Facebook, you've noticed that we dedicate our cover photo to a different charity each month. Our charity of the month program was designed to encourage our employees to think about our community at large and give back. This month's charity is Cradles to Crayons.
Wow! Thanks to all of you we collected an unprecedented 775 toys this year. That's a LOT of happy boys and girls for the holidays. From that total, 213 came from just one community. Village Green Apartments in Plainville, MA really lead the charge with their Toys for Tots cheerleading. Thank you to everyone that contributed we are humbled by your generosity.
