Invaluable Volunteer Award
Outstanding Corporate Partner: Google Boston
Each spring, during Google's Global Volunteer Week, a group of employees from Google Boston come to the Anna Bissonnette House. Over the years they have planted flowers, played bingo, brought ice cream, and held a cook-out. And they always bring a few items - like a Google t-shirt or Google pens - to be used as bingo prizes. They're also willing to pitch in at other times and have also volunteered on their own as holiday gift shoppers or offered to help prepare weekend meals at short notice when a scheduling conflict arose. For everything you do to help our elders: thank you, Google Boston!
