Every April we, along with organizations across the country, dedicate a week to celebrating and honoring our volunteers. This year’s theme was “volunteers bring change.”
As one might imagine, volunteering in a pandemic is somewhat of a challenge. While volunteering did look very different this past year, half our volunteers still found ways to make a meaningful impact in our staff and tenants’ lives.
Even from a distance, these incredible people stepped up and supported our tenants through letters, phone calls, and videos. Thanks to technology, our board and committee meetings continued virtually, and our building maintenance volunteers adjusted to work safely—including preparing apartments for incoming tenants at our newly opened buildings in Hamilton, North End Landing and McQuesten Lofts.
