People Making a Difference® (PMD) seeks to create a world in which people and businesses are socially aware and engaged in their communities such that they approach volunteerism by learning about problems and needs, becoming familiar with local charities that are working to address them, volunteering, and providing other needed resources to make a difference. Our vision is for everyone to be able to volunteer productively a few days a year so that together we make a real difference throughout the year while learning important things along the way.
During the past 22 years, PMD has engaged more than 7,800 volunteers in 1,100+ service projects helping 133 community-based charities.
In 2012, we moved our physical office and tools to a permanent location in Randolph, but we still serve Greater Boston.
