This past holiday season, Pierce Davis & Perritano continued its longstanding partnership with the Wonderfund, an annual gift drive organized by the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF). The gift drive benefits children and teens living in foster care, state-run residential facilities and impoverished homes throughout Massachusetts.
Guided by a wish list for each of the 83 children sponsored by the firm this season, Pierce Davis & Perritano LLP employees (along with their families and friends) purchased toys, clothes, athletic equipment, books or games, which DCF delivered to each child. This season, a total of 55,901 children and teens were provided with gifts of their own to open as a result of the state-wide drive. Melissa M. Malloy, who has spearheaded the firm’s gift drive for the past six years, noted that “while our firm’s employees often tell me this is the most important event we participate in each year, that feeling has been heightened the last two years as the pandemic has increased the struggles of so many Massachusetts families.” The firm looks forward to continuing its participation for many years to come.
Based in Boston, Massachusetts, Pierce Davis & Perritano also has offices in Providence, Rhode Island, Bridgeport, Connecticut, and Los Angeles, California. PDP’s wealth of experience in a wide range of practice areas makes our firm well-suited to guide clients through all phases of litigation.
