Boston – Callahan Construction Managers volunteered at Rosie’s Place in Boston on Nov. 22, to give back to the community in the spirit of the season. This is the fourth time Callahan has volunteered there this year.
During Callahan’s volunteer day, 13 employees prepared and served meals to 141 women and children.
Founded in 1974, Rosie’s Place was the first women’s shelter in the United States. The organization provides meals, shelter and wide-ranging support, from housing to education services.
Rosie’s Place is one of the many organizations where Callahan volunteers both time and resources as part of its Constructing Communities program. The program is designed to support the local communities where Callahan works, offering outreach through volunteerism, the hiring of local subcontractors and the purchase of local goods.
Rosie’s Place looks to maintain the dignity of women in the Boston area by providing a safe, nurturing environment that helps women find security and seek opportunity in their lives.
“As we enter the holiday season, it always feels great to give back to the local community,” said David Morrow, project executive at Callahan. “Being able to volunteer during the holiday season makes this visit extra special.”
Callahan’s corporate responsibility efforts are one of the reasons the company was named a “Top Work Place” by the Boston Globe in 2018.
