VERTEX, through the Massachusetts office, participated in their 11th Annual Adopt a Family Drive in collaboration with the Weymouth Youth and Family Services organization. Kara Hackney, a member of the Charitable Giving Committee shares, “This is the time of year we can give back to those in need and bring joy and happiness to families in our communities. The Adopt a Family program has proven to be such an impactful initiative. The families that we have supported over the past ten years are overwhelmed by the generosity shown to their family during the holiday season.” This year, employees collected toys, games, clothing, and food items for a local family in need and delivered the gifts to Weymouth Youth and Family Services.
The Weymouth Youth and Family Services (WYFS) provides year-round emergency assistance to needy families in Weymouth. Food, clothing, and shelter needs are addressed largely through the generous donations received during the Mayor’s annual holiday giving event. This traditional event is a time in which the whole community bonds together, disregarding social, cultural, religious, and economic differences, for the betterment of its most fragile members.
