Lend A Hand Society’s 125th Spring Gathering

Celebrating 125 Years of Service!

The Lend A Hand Society annual meeting in late April was a time to celebrate but also a reminder that the need for emergency grants in Greater Boston continues to grow. Guests and board members heard President and CEO C. Andrew McCawley, of the New England Center and Home for Veterans, one of our partner agencies, express gratitude for the LAH grants that have helped his clients find housing, pay basic living expenses and more. He also pointed out that an increasing number of veterans are turning to his agency for assistance, particularly older veterans of the World Wars and Korean conflict.
