Boston Fed employees volunteer at the Greater Boston Food Bank
Bank employees make over 7,400 meals possible for local community
Earlier this summer, Boston Fed employees helped give back to the community by volunteering their time at the Greater Boston Food Bank, a hunger-relief organization whose mission is to end hunger in eastern Massachusetts.
The Boston Fed team joined other volunteers to help sort over 9,000 pounds of frozen food at the Food Bank’s Dorchester, Mass. warehouse which was then distributed to different sites across the Greater Boston area. Their efforts helped provide over 7,400 meals for individuals in need.
“Earlier that day, they had about 29 people in for the morning shift. So even though ours was a much smaller group, we were able to get a lot done,” said Pauldine Terme, an administrative services analyst in the Boston Fed’s Network Security Services department. ”The teamwork really kicked in.”
“Everyone who participated was really happy to do so and thought it was a great experience,” said Pauldine, adding that it was gratifying to do something that helped others and allowed her to work alongside her colleagues from the Bank.
Committed to public service that matters, the Boston Fed encourages volunteering at nonprofit, non-partisan organizations through the Bank’s First Serve volunteer program.
