Boston Estate Planning Council Donates $3,000 to Toys for Tots

Members Raised Funds at BEPC Holiday Reception

WAKEFIELD, MASS. – Dec. 20, 2013 — The Boston Estate Planning Council (BEPC), an association of over 800 estate and wealth planning professionals in the greater Boston community, has raised $3,000 for the Toys for Tots Foundation, which provides toys to children who might otherwise not receive holiday gifts. The 200 attendees at the organization’s annual members’ Holiday Reception, held on December 12 at the Hyatt Regency Boston, purchased raffle tickets for local goods and services that had been donated, with proceeds earmarked for the charity.

“BEPC is pleased to support Toys For Tots and help brighten children’s holidays,” said Judith A. Saxe of Atlantic Trust Private Wealth Management, President of BEPC. “Our members welcomed the opportunity to give back to the community at this special time of year.”

Toys for Tots started in 1947 in Los Angeles as an effort by a small group of U.S. Marine Corps reservists. Today, it is active across the United States, and the program has been designated an official mission of the Marine Corps Reserve. There is even a collection box for donated toys in the White House.
