When you schedule a project with Masonry Doctor Inc., part of the proceeds from your project are given directly back to your local community, the North Shore area, rural areas of the United States and 3rd world countries. We donate financially to adult and child community bands/orchestras programs, local fire departments, heating fuel assistant programs, housing assistant programs specifically deigned for helping homeless families and to numerous homeless shelters. We travel on missions trips to Guatemala and Haiti with an organization called Partners In Development to work on house/school construction and community development. We also coordinate several community outreach programs to help individuals facing hardships in the local area. Please check out this page for photos and more information about how you can get involved.
Our annual BLANKET DRIVE runs from December 1-December 23rd. Businesses, schools and individuals throughout the North Shore host BLANKET DROP OFF BOXES at their jobs, schools, churches or houses. The blankets are distributed to the homeless living on the streets of Boston on Christmas Eve by the Masonry Doctor staff. We provide the boxes and will be more than happy to provide a drop off/pick up service for your box. The group that collects the most blankets throughout the drive will receive custom water bottles. Please contact our office directly if you are interested in hosting a box.
Thanksgiving Pie Drive
We bake, purchase and coordinate Thanksgiving Dinner Pie Donations on the North Shore for several Salvation Army locations that provide a Thanksgiving Dinner to homeless in their areas. We typically need approx. 100 pies. If you are interested in baking, donating or dropping off pies this Thanksgiving please contact our office directly.
Gingerbread House Contest to Benefit Housing Families
We compete in a Gingerbread House Contest annually at the Boston Seaport World trade Center which benefits a local organization called 'Housing Families'. The organization works directly with homeless families in Massachusetts by providing various forms of aid and after school programs and places a heavy focus on transitioning homeless families into safe housing. Every gingerbread house is on display during the Christmas Festival at the beginning of November and pre-purchased by a company where it will be moved to and will remain on display for the remainder of the Holiday Season. The houses are sold for varying amounts between $500.00-$1,200.00. All of the sales go directly to Housing Families. If you are interested in helping to construct our house or to get further involved with the Housing Families organization please contact our office directly.
We enter a certificate for 3 days of labor and $500.00 of materials into the Partners In Development Annual Silent Auction and Benefit (typically takes place in October/November). Partners in Development is a non profit organization based out of Ipswich, Mass. and works directly with raising the living conditions of the less fortunate in Haiti, Guatemala, Peru and Mississippi, US through child sponsorship programs, housing programs, medical programs and more. If you are interested in scheduling an up coming project with us please consider bidding on our item as it will help change lives while still allowing you to have your masonry project completed. You can attend their auction or contact their office to place a bid. Our office staff also travels with this organization on construction based mission's trips. For more information on how to place a bid please contact our office directly.
