BOSTON, Nov.26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --The Boston Celtics and Old Mutual Asset
Management (OMAM) teamed up to provide hot and healthy meals to women and
children in need at Rosie's Place today. The meals were prepared by members
of the Celtics and Old Mutual employees, and served by Celtics President, Rich
Gotham, Celtics Player, Avery Bradley, and Old Mutual Executives, Linda Gibson
and Chris Hadley.
"Our partnership with Old Mutual has been tremendous. Our organizations share
a common mission to give back to the community, especially to families who
need an extra hand around the holidays," Rich Gotham said. "Providing
assistance to these Boston families at this time of year strengthens the
meaning of the holidays for all of us."
The event Monday kicked off a week-long volunteer effort that includes Old
Mutual and Celtics employees serving meals at Rosie's Place daily. Both
companies also are holding food drives throughout the week and hope to collect
4,000 non-perishable food items to be donated. This is the third year that
Old Mutual and the Celtics have teamed up to work with Rosie's Place.
"Old Mutual makes it a priority to support Boston's needy and vulnerable
citizens throughout the year, including the women and children served by
Rosie's Place. It's a timely reminder that helping one another is the
foundation to building a community. Our continued partnership with the
Celtics and Rosie's Place during the holiday season reinforces the tremendous
power of sharing and giving back," said Gibson.
