On September 10, MassEdCO staff members Donna Connolly, Taryn Tomkins, Elizabethe Plante and Debra Feraco volunteered through the United Way Day of Caring at the Central Mass Housing Alliance. The Alliance provides housing for homeless families and works with them to find and be successful with permanent housing. The four staff members reorganized two closets of household items donated by the Worcester community to assist families in setting up their homes. During the effort, Youth Access Director Donna Connolly enjoyed reconnecting with Jude Kamiri, assistant director of the Alliance, and Raquale Burnett, another Alliance employee. Both are graduates of the South High School Educational Talent Search program, which Donna directs, and of Worcester State University.
