Hudson, MA – January 22, 2016 – AIS donates office furniture valued at $155,000 to the recently renovated Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island office in downtown Boston.
AIS provided design, project management and installation services for workstations, chairs, tables, storage and a private office in December 2015. This donation helped offset remodeling costs, providing the organization with the ability to grant approximately 20 more wishes in 2016.
“We are sincerely grateful to AIS for the remarkable donation of office furniture. This generous donation has created such a positive change to our work environment in the Boston office, while allowing us to maintain low overhead costs and keep our focus on granting wishes for children with serious illnesses,” said Charlotte Beattie, Chief Executive Officer, Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
In January, Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island hosted an open house at their renovated office. The event allowed AIS employees involved with the project to meet the Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island team. At the event Bruce Platzman, AIS President and CEO, commented, “We’re thrilled to assist Make-A-Wish in any way we can to help bring positive energy to the lives of children one wish at a time. We will always cherish the great work that Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island does and we’re honored to contribute.”
