With Thanksgiving recently passing, The Anthem Group has taken some time to count our blessings. As we enjoyed a day of feasting on turkey and mashed potatoes, we remembered how thankful we are for the Greater Boston community. Although we are active in over 70 markets, we are proud to call Boston our home! We are so grateful for all of our spectacular Boston community partners and want to say thank you.
Anthem actively supports nearly 100 philanthropic entities, such as Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Easter Seals, Cradles to Crayons and more. We help these organizations reach their goals by providing them with the services, resources, and opportunities.
In particular, The Anthem Group contributes to youth services and educational needs. Anthem’s flagship restaurant, The Charles River Bistro, is proud to execute an inner-city youth jobs program, which teaches at-risk youth the accountability, commitment, and job skills they need to lead successful lives. The Bistro also hosts field day outings that expose at-risk pre-teens and teens to new places, people, and cultural experiences.
In addition to youth programs, The Bistro offers services that benefit adults, such as a substance abuse jobs program and a jobs program for those transitioning back into the workforce due to homeless situations. The Bistro partners with the amazing organizations, Action for Boston Community Development’s (ABCD) WorkSMART program and Madison Park Technical Vocational High School to employ their qualified constituents. The Bistro also serves the community by partnering with a variety of organizations such as the Catholic Charities of Boston, Mass Mentoring Partnership and Friends of Boston’s Homeless.
Anthem President, Chris Sinclair, strongly believes in corporate responsibility and giving back to the Boston community. His work as the Chair for ABCD’s Hoop Dreams fundraiser further demonstrates how Anthem provides organizations with our resources and high visibility to bolster their causes.
This autumn, The Anthem Group is thankful for the honor to help our amazing partners achieve their goals!
