Under the leadership of Nicole Hunter Hart, Senior Manager, Partner Success Programs, 17 Continuum employees volunteered to put together care packages to be delivered to the New England Center and Home for Veterans (NECHV). The care packages were donated to veterans who are transitioning out of homelessness and into the programs offered at the center.
Included in the packages were bathrobes, shower shoes, pillows, pillow cases, sets of sheets, and comforters. These items were intended to make the transition out of homelessness easier on the veterans involved in the program. Nicole organized the efforts of 17 Continuum employees and worked with the NECHV on requirements for the care packages and drop off. The rest was a group effort to raise money and put together 17 care packages ready for delivery and use of those who need it.
Nicole Hunter Hart knows the importance of giving back to those who have served our country.
"Giving back to veterans is very meaningful to me, not only because I have family members and close friends who have served our country but, also because I believe in giving back to those individuals who have given and sacrificed for all of us. Politics aside, our veterans stepped forward throughout history so others could live the lives they worked so hard to build. I think this is a way that I can step forward for them now."
