We are thinking of our VOA family throughout the country after such devasting tornadoes and storms, but our hearts especially go out to those in Kentucky.
We are so thankful for Greystar Apartments and their generous coat and jacket donations!! With over 125 coats, we cannot wait to distribute these among our programs and facilities.
We are looking forward to a season full of giving!

It's summertime (ignore the cool rain outside!) and that means it's time to launch our annual Operation Backpack campaign! Together - from company office drives to individual families - we and our donors help families prepare for the school year. OBP is truly an essential effort where you can make a huge difference in the lives of families that could use a little extra support! Please contact VOAMASS at (617) 522-8086 to find out more information or email Andrew at [email protected].

What will you remember when you reflect on the year 2020? For us at VOAMASS, we see through 2020's chaotic fog. We see the same fearless dedication, generosity, compassion, inspiration, and transformation that's always been here, but in 2020 was so piercingly present. We see you, our kind neighbors and community members, and for all the little things, too, we are so grateful.

Captured in the act is Thomas Pittman, Case Manager at Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) as the Grinch. Tom drove around Boston delivering toys to families in need as the Grinch. Our SSVF team including Eileen Merisola, Program Director and Max Maydoney, Case Manager helped Tom in full Grinch attire coordinate drop off's to surprise the kids! Each child got to pull a hand-picked gift out of a big sack as if they were at the foot of Santa's sleigh themselves, surrounded by magic.
