JM Electrical Company, Inc., leader in advanced automated building system installations, today announced the completion of its holiday winter clothing drive and fundraising campaign to benefit The Clothing Connection, a local nonprofit organization which has served the Salem community since 2016.
During the month of December, JM coordinated donations from colleagues and friends with an emphasis on cold weather gear including jackets, boots, hats, gloves and outerwear. The Lynnfield-based firm raised almost $2,000 and collected enough winter apparel to help as many as a dozen children for the entire year.
“On behalf of our colleagues, we hope these donations will provide support, and warmth, to those in need during the cold months of the year,” said Matthew Guarracino, Principal at JM Electrical. “We are proud to contribute to an organization like the Clothing Connection and support their mission and programs.”
“We are so grateful for the crew at JM Electrical. We loved meeting everyone before the holidays, and appreciated all the enthusiasm and good questions,” said Susanna Baird, co-Founder and co-President of Clothing Connection. “Not only are we entering our spring purchasing season with a generous donation, but also we now have a store of winter items heading into next year. Thanks, JM.”
Made up of community members, including parents and public school staff in Salem, the Clothing Connection provides clothes and other essentials to Salem children. During the last school year, the organization supported over 60 children at five Salem schools.
