The Phil Richard Insurance Community Outreach Team was established in early 2016. For us, Community Outreach means helping any way we can. Knowing the success of our business is dependent on the success of our friends on the North Shore—in Peabody, Danvers, and beyond, Community Outreach bonds us as a team giving us a greater purpose here at Phil Richard Insurance.

Besides event participation and ongoing fundraising, our office in Danvers, MA is a drop-off location for Survivor Basket donations.
Tough Warrior Princess assembles and delivers Survivor Baskets by request around the North Shore of Boston throughout the year. The demand for these baskets continues to rise, signaling to all of us that cancer is touching more and more families every day.
We appreciate your donation of items to keep these Survivor Baskets filled. Follow the link for types of contributions are encouraged and what donations we may need now.

Citizen’s Inn & Haven From Hunger
Everyone deserves safety, dignity, and hope — to have shelter from the weather, heal when they are sick, and share meals in a place where they can grow and flourish as part of a community. For 34 years, Citizens Inn, Inc., now merged with Haven from Hunger, has worked toward ending homelessness and hunger across the North Shore. Our mission calls us to support everyone with dignity and respect, as they live in our emergency shelter, Citizens Inn Between; our sober living transitional housing shelter, Citizens Inn Transition; our affordable housing units, Citizens Inn Homes; or join us for meals as part of our Citizens Inn Haven from Hunger program. Through our work, we not only provide a safe place to stay and a meal on the table, but offer tools to empower families and individuals to find permanent solutions to break the patterns of instability in their lives.

Ellis Square Friends
This group was created with the intention of helping our less fortunate neighbors. Most of the people we help are the homeless population who assemble at Ellis Square. However, there are a few other people who benefit from our assistance as well. People who have extremely limited means, with whom we share surplus items. Our mission is to provide clothing, food, and whatever resources we can to help these people survive, and in some instances get off the streets.
We need volunteers to help with the setup, serving and break down of our community meals. We also need help with receiving, sorting and putting out donations; sorting through trash, recycling, and compost; and cleaning up of the fellowship hall after the dinner.

Beverly Bootstraps was first established in 1992 as a food pantry in the basement of the First Baptist Church. With the generous support of our donors, volunteers and the community at large, we have grown to be a leading social service agency on the North Shore.
We are unique in our approach to the issues of hunger. While recognizing that people need food in hand to stem immediate hunger, our clients also need the opportunity to be embraced by the community, educated about the resources available and empowered to improve their own lives.
As we continue to grow, our commitment to the community remains the same: to provide critical resources to families and individuals so that they may achieve self-sufficiency. We accomplish this while maintaining our commitment to fiscal responsibility and serving as trusted stewards of the organization.

Put on the map by the Frates family and the help of their communities–Beverly, MA, and Boston College, ALS is a disease that impacts households world-wide. A neurodegenerative disease that destroys your body while your brain stays intact, it’s an incredibly difficult illness for any person or family to have to endure. Thankfully, due to the large efforts of the North Shore of MA and the Boston area, ALS is now closer to a cure than ever.

Fight With Frank
We believe ALS is not incurable, it’s just underfunded. We’ve been humbled by the strong-willed people who fight for their loved ones every single day.

Progeria Research Foundation
The MISSION of The Progeria Research Foundation:
To discover treatments and the cure for Progeria and its aging-related disorders, including heart disease.
Progeria is a rare, fatal, “rapid aging” disease. Without the discovery of new treatments, all children with Progeria will die of heart disease at an average age of 14 years. The Progeria Research Foundation (PRF) was founded in 1999 in response to the complete lack of progress being made to help children with Progeria. Our original mission: to discover the cause, treatments and cure for Progeria.* Today, PRF continues to be the only organization in the world solely dedicated to this mission. We have filled a void, taking these children out of the background where they had been for over 100 years and putting them and Progeria at the forefront of scientific efforts.
