Helping children and their families who have to spend their holidays at Children's Hospital Boston is important way to give back to our community.
Waltham, MA (PRWEB) December 04, 2012
McGeough Lamacchia Realty is hosting a toy drive for Children’s Hospital Boston. Beginning December 4, 2012 through December 21, 2012, the McGeough Lamacchia company headquarters will serve as a toy drop off center for children who must spend the holidays at Children’s Hospital Boston.
John McGeough and Anthony Lamacchia, co-brokers and owners of McGeough Lamacchia Realty, say the toy drive is a great way to give back during the holiday season.
“Helping children and their families who have to spend their holidays at Children's Hospital Boston is an important way to give back to our community,” says John McGeough.
“Children’s Hospital has helped my family many times over the years. I’m honored our company can do this toy drive and make a difference so kids can have some fun during their stay at the hospital. It’s a great feeling to be able to help,” says Anthony Lamacchia.
Danielle Bovill, who works as an outside agent for McGeough Lamacchia Realty, came up with the idea for the company to host the toy drive. Her three year old son has been treated for respiratory and lung problems at Children’s Hospital since he was four months old.
“As a mom whose baby has breathing issues it's very scary, but the team at Children's Hospital has been so wonderful with my son and myself. I'm so excited to try and give back!”
On Friday December 21 all donations dropped off at the company headquarters will be collected and loaded into the McGeough Lamacchia company vehicles to be delivered to Children’s Hospital in Boston.
McGeough Lamacchia encourages people to drop off brand new, unwrapped toys at their corporate headquarters at 411 Waverley Oaks Drive, Building 3, Suite 311 in Waltham, Massachusetts.
