Mission: 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.
Results: 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.
Target demographics: motivated people volunteer to help the neediest, community-based charities in organized groups
Geographic areas served: Greater Boston
Programs: organized one-time, hands-on volunteer projects for individuals, partnerships with businesses to promote effective community involvement, and training and assistance to nonprofit leaders seeking quality volunteer management.

People who volunteer with People Making a Difference (PMD) are super motivated and reliable. They arrive ready to help where they're needed most, and come with tools and manager(s). PMD volunteers make an effort to get to know charities and the issues our clients face. PMD volunteers also contribute financially to help purchase materials when needed (and when they can afford to do so), which makes all the difference.
