Board employees contributed generously to annual holiday donation drives and volunteered at Broad Street Ministry.
The Board of Pensions regularly partners with charitable organizations as part of its commitment to support the local community. Throughout November and December, Board employees dedicated their time and resources to those in need.
As in previous years, we partnered with Philabundance, the region's largest hunger-relief organization, to collect food for those facing food insecurity in Philadelphia. Board employees donated 125.5 pounds of food, helping to feed over 275 families and 145 senior citizens struggling to make ends meet.
During the holiday season, we also held a Toys for Tots drive for children in the Philadelphia area. This year, Board of Pensions employees donated 75 toys, as well as books, gloves, and socks.
In November, a team of Board of Pensions employees volunteered at Broad Street Ministry, an alternative church community that provides meals and other social services to many of Philadelphia's hungry and homeless individuals.
The caring and generosity shown by Board employees is one reason the Board of Pensions was honored by the Philadelphia Business Journal as a 2018 Best Places to Work.
