We feel it is important to give back to our country and communities.
Some of the growing list of causes we support include:
Mark’s high school classmate and friend Glen Doherty served as a Navy Seal and gave his life storming into Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/2012 to help save fellow Americans under attack when nobody else would. Mark’s dad also proudly served as a Captain and Medical Officer in the U.S. Air Force. We proudly support the GDMF which provides scholarships to help our heroes as they transition from military to civilian life.
As a family physician, Mark’s dad loved providing care for all living things – people, animals and plants. He especially loved his dogs and contributed to numerous animal charities. We support the Eastwood Foundation’s great work to find homes for animals in need. We also like all things Eastwood. Mark's son asked to also mention that his name is Clint.
Mark’s goddaughter and niece actively participates in the Best Buddies program as a buddy in Massachusetts. Mark’s sports idol, Tom Brady, also actively supports Best Buddies’ programs. We are pleased to contribute to Best Buddies’ efforts to help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Alice Cooper has been Mark’s musical idol ever since he snuck out of the house and took the train to the Worcester Centrum to see his comeback tour in 1986. We are proud to support Alice and Sheryl Cooper’s Solid Rock Foundation which provides music, art and theater programs to keep teens in the Phoenix, Arizona area with a supportive and safe environment to explore their creative side.
