Northland Donates Over $110,000 to Local Charities
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have more people in our communities struggling with food insecurity, financial insecurity, homelessness and domestic violence. This past holiday season, Northland gave back to the Greater Boston community by donating $100,000 split evenly among four organizations that have worked tirelessly to make our neighborhoods a better place for all:
- HomeStart, an organization that has permanently housed more than 10,000 individuals living on the street and in shelters, and has prevented nearly 3,000 families from experiencing homelessness.
- The Greater Boston Food Bank, the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the country.
- Cradles to Crayons Boston, an organization focused on providing children living in homeless or low-income situations with the essential items they need to thrive at home, at school and at play.
- Rosie’s Place, the first women’s shelter in the U.S., which remains focused on providing a safe and nurturing environment to help poor and homeless women maintain their dignity, seek opportunity, and find security in their lives.
In addition, Northland matched all of its employees’ contributions to these organizations, raising nearly $10,000 in additional funding for these amazing groups. We are so proud of our team and their generosity, and look forward to supporting these and other amazing groups in 2021.
