Bringing Holiday Cheer to Families in a Transitional Living Program Home
Each Friday employees in MEC Industrial's Waltham district office donate $1.00 for the opportunity to wear jeans to work on Friday. The money that is collected is used to purchase gifts for local families in need. In 2015, over $2,500 was collected and used to purchase items for six families living in an inner-city transitional living home. According to Doreen MacLellan, MEC employee, "We were able to meet the needs and wants of their [the mothers and kids] wish lists, in addition to providing each parent with a $75 gift card and the kids a $25 gift card to spend as they see fit."
