The Masterman family is well-known locally for
their generosity and outreach. Following their example, employees embrace a
culture of giving that extends goodwill to those around us. Throughout the
year, we participate in numerous activities geared to help the community at
large. Below are a few of our local spotlights.
The Boy's and Girl's Club of Worcester is where Ben Masterman spent a lot of his time growing up. It was there that he learned table tennis, and by age 17 had become a nationally ranked player. Eventually, Ben served on the Board of Directors and Tod Masterman, like his father, served on that same board too. Many of our employees volunteer on a regular basis to help out at the Club's Kid's Café and other special events. We enjoy being part of an organization that serves over 6,000 children annually.
AYFS provides much needed assistance and programs to the local community. They provide a wide range of services, including financial and food pantry support, tutoring, advocacy, and counseling. As the number of people they serve has grown, so has our support for this excellent organization. We applaud them for being such a strong support system for the Auburn community.
In 1993, Tod Masterman started Needs and Threads to collect gently worn clothing for the homeless shelter in Worcester, MA. Over the years, it has grown into a volunteer committee of Masterman's employees that raises funds and coordinates efforts for various services across Worcester County. Whether it is a donation to a local charity, food pantry, an individual in need, or care packages to our service men and women abroad, our goal is to make a positive impact on people's lives.
