Bringing Christmas to the Children of the Bridge Home at St. Mary's
Each holiday season, The Bridge Home at St. Mary's Center for Women & Children in Dorchester puts on a special day for many of the children who call it home. Sadly, many of these children who come from severe poverty or have experienced traumatic life experiences, never have gotten to celebrate a true Christmas. Right before Christmas, Corcoran employees take to local stores and purchase warm clothing, socks, shoes, and even fulfill a list of toy requests for the children of the Bridge Home. This year, we were honored to put a smile on the faces of these children who have gone through challenges in their early lives. CLICK HERE TO DONATE TO ST. MARY"S CENTER FOR WOMEN & CHILDREN
