In honor of Veterans Day, approximately 30 volunteers from Bank of America served those who served their country by working on several projects to better the lives of individuals at the New England Center for Homeless Veterans (NECHV). They completed interior painting work, assembled and installed new furniture, and put finishing touches on the Center’s renovation project. The updates made to the third floor, which included furnishings, were the first in two decades. Joining the volunteers was three-time Super Bowl Champion and New England Patriots alumnus Patrick Pass.
The effort was part of the broader support provided by Bank of America, which includes funding for the Center’s 360 program and newly renovated program space. The Veteran 360 program provides mental health programs, including: clinical case management, senior services, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) treatment and addiction services. Funding from Bank of America will enable NECHV to unite all these services in a centralized location.
We are extremely grateful to Bank
of America for
their support of the
Center for Homeless Veterans.
NECHV President and CEO
“We are extremely grateful to Bank of America for their support of the New England Center for Homeless Veterans,” said NECHV President and CEO C. Andrew McCawley. “Their generous investments of time and money will help us to carry out our mission of serving veterans in need as we work to end veteran homelessness.”
Added Bob Gallery, Bank of America Massachusetts President: “Our veterans have made tremendous sacrifices in times of need for our nation. New England Center for Homeless Veterans honors those sacrifices when our veterans, in turn, find themselves in need. These improvements will help connect these brave men and women to the services they need on their path to economic self-sufficiency.”
