Their faces, joy, excitement and best of all – hugs – were by far and away the best present we will get this year.

The holiday smiles are a bit brighter at Hayden McFadden Elementary School in New Bedford, Massachusetts this year. In the spirit of the holiday season, local business CertaPro Painters by ProGroup Network is giving back to first grade school children through a partnership with the Marion Institute, which is dedicated to identifying and promoting programs that seek to enhance life for the Earth and its inhabitants, and the employees of the expert painting company.
To kick off the season of giving, the staff at CertaPro Painters by ProGroup Network collected school supplies, books, stickers and other surprises to distribute to their adopted first grade classroom at Hayden McFadden Elementary School. A total of 28 students were given a Christmas gift bag filled with the supplies and were able to take these items home with them to enjoy. In addition, the classroom was given much needed supplies, paper, books and other items to use within the classroom throughout the school year. “Their faces, joy, excitement and best of all – hugs – were by far and away the best present we will get this year,” says the team at CertaPro Painters by ProGroup Network.
The holiday cheer doesn’t stop there! The company and the Marion Institute will also be participating in a coat and sweatshirt drive for students at Hayden McFadden Elementary School that was orchestrated by the school. They will be collecting items, specifically coats and sweatshirts for children aged 5-8, through January 18th and will be supplying the same first grade classroom with winter hats for each of the students. “This coat and sweatshirt drive is a great way for our team to give back to the community and to ensure students will be prepared for the winter weather ahead,” reports the group. If you would like to donate to the coat and sweatshirt drive, please drop off or mail your items by January 18th, 2013 to:

While projects like these tend to take place around the holidays, the professionals at CertaPro Painters by ProGroup Network believe in giving back to their community year-round. In conjunction with the Marion Institute, located in Marion, MA, the team will be working with the students at least once a quarter on other activities such as gardening, healthy and sustainable living activities, and supporting educational efforts.
“We will continue to find ways to enrich the lives of these children and our community,” says the group. “As we continue to expand our efforts to give back to the local community, we look forward to participating in many more programs in years to come.”
