Some of New England’s most philanthropic business leaders teamed up to hit a homerun for St. Francis House. Nearly 450 people turned out at the Fairmont Copley Plaza for “All the Way Home: An Evening to Benefit St. Francis House."
St. Francis House is New England’s largest day shelter for the poor and homeless.
The event, chaired by Suffolk Construction Chairman & CEO John Fish of Milton and Global Partners Vice Chairman Richard Slifka, highlighted the effective, innovative partnership between Citizens Bank and St. Francis House.
Through the leadership of Citizens President Jerry Sargent, Citizens Bank has been a loyal supporter of St. Francis House since the first day the shelter opened its doors 28 years ago.
Back in January, 1984, no one had heard of a day shelter, or a multi-service shelter where homeless adults can find everything they need to rebuild their lives.
But Citizens Bank believed in that concept, and has helped St. Francis House grow from a grassroots organization to a comprehensive agency that is setting the standard in how to alleviate and eliminate homelessness.
