In the Community
Cataldo’s Annual Golf Tournament began in 1993 with the intention of making a small annual contribution to the Fight Against Cancer. Now, after hosting for 28 years, Cataldo Ambulance Service has raised over $250,000 for the cause. The Cataldo Swing Fore Hope annual charity golf tournament donates all proceeds to the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge in Boston. The Hope Lodge offers Cancer patients and their families a free, temporary place to stay while patients are receiving their treatments.
With exciting raffle prizes, networking and sponsorship opportunities, Cataldo ensures we can make a difference in the lives of many suffering from Cancer. For more information about sponsorship opportunities for the 2021 Charity Golf Tournament click here.
Each December Cataldo Ambulance Service works with the Somerville Housing Authority to collect toys to be donated to the local “Toys for Tots” campaign in local communities.
The toy drive, previously held at the Assembly Square Mall in Somerville, proves to be more successful each year. Last year, Cataldo employees stepped up to make donations allowing SHA to purchase new toys to be distributed to local children up to 11 years of age.
Serving local communities creates opportunities to collaborate in many ways. The more visible ways include supporting local Chambers, participating in community events, sponsoring local organizations and encouraging students to learn more about EMS.
Less visible partnerships are also critical to building and strengthening the resources that help keep our communities safe. Whether participating in the Opioid prevention Taskforce, or teaching first aid and CPR to kids, Cataldo works to improve the quality of life for residents in served communities at every opportunity.
Trouble the Dog, has helped countless kids weather the stress of frightening or chaotic situations. Cataldo recently launched a collaboration with The Kennek Foundation, the creators of Trouble, in order to ensure every child in need has access to a soft friend like Trouble.zz
