QUINCY MAYOR THOMAS KOCH PRESENTS MAQUETTE OF JOHN HANCOCK TO GRANITE CEO ROBERT HALE
Granite Donates $6.5 Million to Fund Pediatric Cancer Research in 6th Annual ‘Saving by Shaving’ Event
Quincy Mayor Thomas P. Koch today presented the Maquette of John Hancock to Robert Hale, CEO of Granite Telecommunications, a $1.4 billion provider of communications services to multilocation businesses and government agencies.
The presentation coincided with Granite’s 6th annual “Saving by Shaving” event, wherein more than 1,000 people shaved their heads or donated their hair to earn $6.5 million in donations for pediatric cancer research at Boston Children’s Hospital. In the past six years, more than 8,000 people have participated in the event raising more than $28.5 million for charitable organizations.
“The generosity and benevolence that this organization shows with Rob [Hale’s] leadership is just incredible,” said Mayor Koch. “So, we wanted to honor him and the organization today with this John Hancock Maquette. A lot of people don’t realize the history of John Hancock and what a charitable giver he was at the time, and I think Rob Hale fits that mold.”
Mayor Koch also expressed thanks for Granite’s impact as a corporate citizen and a top employer in Quincy. Granite employs 2,100 teammates nationwide, with a significant number located in Quincy.
