We believe in maintaining strong community values. Both as a company and on an individual level, we dedicate significant time and energy to making our community a better place.
As a company, we are involved in a variety of organizations, including the Rotary, Kiwanis, Knights of Columbus, South Shore Chamber of Commerce, Weymouth Chamber of Commerce, Nantasket Chamber of Commerce, Weymouth Elks, North Quincy High School Grief Program, St. Paul’s School in Hingham, Quincy Catholic Academy, Massachusetts Memorial Tree Program, The Bosox Club, and many others. We also sponsor various youth sports teams in Quincy, Hingham, Hull, and Weymouth.
A big part of our community dedication involves organizing or participating in events, including:
Music at the Gazebo
This is a free annual concert series that we organize and sponsor at the Veteran’s Memorial Park Gazebo in Hull. It takes place on three Sundays in September and features a wide range of musicians. It is a source of pride that this series has become an end of summer tradition.
Annual Quincy Flag Day Parade
Keohane Funeral Home has collected Veterans’ Flags for the Veterans’ Float of Flags in the annual Quincy Flag Day Parade for many years. The float honors servicemen and women by displaying flags given to honorably discharged veterans and to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country. It is a great event that brings the community together for a fun way to celebrate this day of remembrance.
Every spring, people across Massachusetts fight back against cancer through the American Cancer Society’s Daffodil Days program. Keohane serves as a coordinator for this event, joining in the fight against cancer. By making a Daffodil Days donation, you will be doing more than giving or receiving beautiful flowers – you will be sharing hope by raising funds and awareness to beat the disease.

In 2012, we held a coat drive throughout the month of November, encouraging people to clean out their closets and drop off any gently worn coats that they were willing to donate. Dependable Cleaners graciously offered to clean the coats, and then we were able to give them to those in need via the Wellspring Multi-Service Center in Hull, Interfaith Social Services in Quincy, and Weymouth Youth and Family Services in Weymouth. Considering we exceeded our initial goal of collecting 250 coats, this was an incredibly successful event that we plan on making an annual drive!
It all comes down to the fact that our relationship does not end with the funeral. Since we live in the same community as you and your family, we have a responsibility to make it the best community possible.
