The Peabody Companies’ Participate in Metro Housing™ Boston Toy and Book Drive


Braintree, MA (February 5, 2024) – The Peabody Companies, a group of award-winning property management and real estate firms now celebrating its 48th anniversary, was proud to participate in the recent Metro Housing™ Boston Toy and Book Drive.


Peabody employees were asked to “help bring joy to children in need” by purchasing toys, gift cards, and books for children and teens who are provided services from Metro Housing™ Boston. The nonprofit organization mobilizes wide-ranging resources that lead families and individuals to housing stability, economic security, and an improved quality of life.


As a result of the Metro Housing™ Boston Toy and Book, 129 children from 78 households received gifts during the holiday season.


“I think all who participated in this drive had as much fun selecting and purchasing items as the children and teens who received them!” said Melissa Fish-Crane, principal and CEO of The Peabody Companies, noting the pleasure Peabody employees have taken in the many notes and photos of appreciation. 


Metro Housing™ Boston’s personalized services help residents of greater Boston bridge gaps in the homelessness prevention and affordable housing system. Working with individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of losing their homes navigate available services, the organization empowers 25,000 households a year to move along the continuum from homelessness to housing stability.
