Community Involvement

We believe strongly in helping those who are less fortunate than us and in giving back to the community. One of our passions is enabling women to enrich their lives and the lives of their families. To that end, we are actively involved in several local organizations because we've found that giving back enriches our souls.
 
Hospice of the North Shore & Greater Boston
