Instead of exchanging white elephant gifts or purchasing a present under the $20 limit, the staff at the Stoneham Savings Bank branch in Malden decided to make a difference for Triangle.
“Each year our staff donates to a local charity instead of giving inter-office gifts. This year we decided to empower people with disabilities by giving to Triangle,” says Linda Kane, Branch Manager.
This year, the employees of Stoneham Savings Bank did not scrimp. The employees donated $565 to support Triangle’s innovative career and life development programs.
On Tuesday, December 27 Ms. Kane presented Christine Murdocca, a longtime Malden resident and crewmember of Triangle’s Ablevision program, and Ernie Sacco, her fellow crewmember who resides in Revere, with a $565 contribution.
Christine noted that “it was so exciting to get another gift after Christmas. This is great!”
Since 1971 Triangle has provided support, challenge, and opportunity to people with disabilities and their families. In 2012 Triangle will provide innovative career, residential, and life-development opportunities for over 3,000 people in over 120 eastern Massachusetts communities.
