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 Granites 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 Childrens 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 [Hales] 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 dont 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 Granites impact as a corporate citizen and a top employer in Quincy. Granite employs 2,100 teammates nationwide, with a significant number located in Quincy.
