Making Spirits Bright This Season

The Corcoran Connections committee aims to connect employees across the company by providing them with new opportunities for greater engagement and participation. The committee recently challenged all of our properties to support a charity of their choice to contribute to this Holiday Season. Corcoran Connections is tracking the various types of charities that our properties are receiving collections for and donating to this year. Although the giving started in November with Thanksgiving, properties are continuing to give back throughout the duration of the Holiday Season.

One Wall Street located in Attleboro, MA chose to support One Warm Coat. One Wall Street is running a coat drive to collect lightly used coat donations so everyone can stay warm this winter. Although Village Green is in Littleton, MA, their residents' donations will be reaching a number of other communities in the surrounding area. Village Green chose to start a food and personal care item drive for the Westford Food Pantry. This food pantry is unique as residents of Westford, Littleton, Billerica, Chelmsford, Dracut, and Tyngsboro all have access to it.

Halstead Manchester got in on the season of giving by accepting donations on behalf of a local charity called Families in Transition in Manchester, NH. This is a fantastic organization that operates shelters, dining services, a food pantry, and offers substance abuse treatment services. The decision to choose this organization illustrates Corcoran Management Company's interest and constant efforts to aid in the fight against homelessness.

Union and West, Weymouth Commons, Beverly Commons, and our corporate office are all participating in Holiday toy drives for several different charities. Union and West is donating collections to the Walpole Police Department's toy event while Weymouth Commons is giving toys and gifts to The Friends of the Homeless of the South Shore's Christmas Shop. Beverly Commons is supporting Toys for Tots and this will be the 10th year in a row that the corporate office is donating toys to the Salvation Army due to such substantial contributions every year.
