Our employees take a big interest in helping the less fortunate, and this year, we wanted to show our support by donating a majority of our holiday gathering funds to Heading Home.
Boston, MA (Vocus) December 23, 2009
Jenzabar®, Inc., a leading provider of software, services and strategies for higher education, announced today that it is donating $2,500 to the Cambridge-based charity organization Heading Home. In lieu of the company’s holiday party, Jenzabar’s donation will help Heading Home in their effort to end homelessness in Greater Boston.
Heading Home’s mission is to end homelessness in the Greater Boston area by providing housing in conjunction with effective support services to help change the lives of homeless individuals and families. Founded in 1974, Heading Home recognized years ago that the answer to homelessness was not to provide temporary solutions, but to create programs that offered individuals the opportunity for permanent change. Their programs focus on an individual’s needs and strengths to help them work towards new goals.
“Our employees take a big interest in helping the less fortunate, and this year, we wanted to show our support by donating a majority of our holiday gathering funds to Heading Home,” says Robert A. Maginn, Jr., Jenzabar Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We hope our donation will allow Heading Home to maintain their extraordinary work and also help them make an even greater impact in 2010.”
Jenzabar’s donation will provide “starter kits” for two Heading Home families that include the household items necessary to start a new home, such as linens, kitchenware, and furniture. Since homelessness affects all ages and all family members, the donation will also go toward gifts for the children Heading Home serves. These special youth gifts include educational toys and school supplies.
Heading Home’s Executive Director Tom Lorello remarked, “As Heading Home moves families into permanent housing, the donation of these essential items, in conjunction with our supportive services, will facilitate a smooth transition and future success. We are grateful for Jenzabar’s support.”
