Boston Celtics forward Jared Sullinger and legend Walter McCarty lent a helping hand at the Victory Programs’ ReVision Family Home in Dorchester as part of Sun Life Financial’s annual Community Care Day Friday afternoon. Members of the Boston Celtics front office, Boston Cares and more than ninety Sun Life employee volunteers, including Senior Vice President of Operations David Healy, also participated in the event, which included several maintenance and service projects for the home, which serves as a shelter for homeless women and their young families, as well as expectant mothers.
Volunteers participated in a variety of projects including painting the halls and common area, replacing TV stands, minor repairs, building picnic tables and planter benches, and redecorating with new curtains, wallpaper, and framed photos. The group also helped plant trees and landscape at the ReVision Urban Farm, the program’s community-based urban agriculture project that provides access to affordable, nutritious and culturally appropriate food to residents of the home.
Sun Life Financial has been a corporate partner of the Boston Celtics since the 2010-2011 season, and in 2012, acquired the rights to the Sun Life Courtside Club, the team’s primary VIP hospitality venue in TD Garden. Sun Life hosts an annual Community Care Day for employees to come together to help their local communities.
Victory Programs’ ReVision Family Home is a shelter for homeless women and their young families as well as expecting mothers that provides life-stabilization services, intensive housing placement services and vocational case management services. Under the direction of Victory Programs, ReVision Family Home also operates a child care facility for the children of its residents.
