Our Natixis Charity Team comes through again!

This month, our Charity Team at Natixis Investment Managers hosted a winter clothing drive for the guests of St. Francis House.  Clothing donations are essential for our guests.  Once sorted and sized, clothing is distributed to our guests through our Fresh Threads program. The bounty of items collected from Natixis included: winter coats, warm outerwear, protective under layers, and hats, gloves and scarfs.  As the Boston winter gets colder, St. Francis House sees an increased need for the warmest items.

What is the Natixis Charity Team?

St. Francis House is privileged to be one of the selected charities supported by Natixis Investment Managers. First, Natixis employees join a charity team. Then, they participate and interact with that agency throughout the year.  Currently our charity team currently has over sixty members who support and engage with us in a variety of ways.

How does the Charity Team support us?

The ways our Charity Team supports us include:

  • Participating in our Emerging Leaders group
  • Attending and promoting our St. Francis House fundraising events
  • Hosting and supporting bi-annual clothing drives
  • Volunteering on site at St. Francis House in our food service or clothing departments
  • Participating in the holiday gift drive for our Moving Ahead Students
  • Direct Payroll Giving

St. Francis House is fortunate to have widespread support from corporations and foundations that are committed to improving the quality of life for everyone in Greater Boston.  The St. Francis House relationship with Natixis is a model of a true corporate partnership.  The many levels of diverse support and commitment offer something for everyone.

Thank you again Natixis for all you do throughout the year.
