Holliston, MA – Employees throughout Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. (Griffin Electric) recently donated hundreds of toys and other gifts on behalf of the Holliston Pantry Shelf and U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program during the holiday season. Griffin Electric also made donations to some of the many food pantries in each of the regions that it works and recently hosted a blood drive to benefit Boston Children’s Hospital.
Around Veterans Day, the New England region held a Personal Care Item Drive in support of veterans and Project New Hope. And as it has for many years, as the holidays approached Griffin team members in New England also purchased presents for some of the local families that the Holliston Pantry Shelf serves as part of its annual Mitten Project. Each employee was paired with a mitten that corresponded with a child and a specific gift request, which included items such as clothing, footwear, toys, games, and gift cards.
Employees throughout each of the company’s southeast regions in Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina once again supported Toys for Tots. This holiday season marked the 75th anniversary of the program, which has a mission to “collect new unwrapped toys and distribute those toys to less fortunate children at Christmas.” The milestone is an important reminder of the significant impact that this cause has had for local families across the country, and Griffin Electric is proud to participate in a program that has supported more than 281 million children, according to representatives of the firm.
Shortly after the New Year, the company partnered with Boston Children’s Hospital and welcomed their new bloodmobile on-site at its Holliston headquarters. Many employees made donations and helped make it a successful blood drive for the hospital. Griffin employees are active participants in every community service project that the company gets involved with.
