The holidays can certainly be festive for most people, but they can also be challenging for others. At Bullhorn, we care about the community and try to make the holidays extra special for those children and their families who might need some extra support during this time of year.
We’ve recently concluded our 13th annual Bullhorn Holiday Heroes Drive in Boston, raising more than $31,000 for the community. This year, we’ve partnered with three amazing organizations: REACH Beyond Domestic Violence, Christmas in the City, and Action for Boston Community Development. These organizations greatly impact the community by helping underserved and underprivileged children and families. They also supply us with holiday wish lists to fulfill for more than 100 kids.
Over the years, we’ve helped make thousands of children’s holidays merry and bright. These are kids who are living in shelters or with their families well below the poverty line. Without assistance, some of these kids would, unfortunately, never experience the magic of the holidays. We, along with numerous other companies, buy the toys and games they want, but we also buy the necessities such as clothing, shoes, and books they deserve.
“Participating in Bullhorn’s Holiday Heroes Drive is one of the most humbling experiences,” said Bullhorn employee Jess Lunan, who has been volunteering in the drive for the past 11 years. “At this time of year, it’s incredibly important to come together as a community and support one another. Our society can only flourish when we help each other, and when we can do that, we can create a better tomorrow, today.”
The Bullhorn Holiday Heroes Drive is part of our global Bullhorn Cares program, our employee volunteer and service initiative. It allows employees worldwide opportunities to find causes that are important to them and connect with their local communities. Volunteerism and service are integral components of our company’s fabric.
Thank you to REACH, Christmas in the City, and Action for Boston Community Development for all the tireless work that each of you do to help make our community a better place. Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!
