Our hearts are full! ❤️ Many of our residents celebrated Valentine's Day over the weekend including @station101beverly in Beverly, MA, who handed out cupcakes. In Bedford, MA, Bedford Green residents received gift baskets filled with items to warm their hearts from three different donors! 

Boy Scout, Spencer Walsh, donated Personal Care Bags for his Eagle Scout Project. He did a fantastic job coordinating the COVID safe assembly of 302 complete personal care kits for our Veterans. He collaborated with @ipodsforwoundedveterans to donate these kits, of which 118 were donated to Peabody Properties' Bedford Green, Howard Apartments, and Pleasant St. Apartments.
@ekam_usa Teen Group in Lexington, MA made 70 handmade Patriots fleece hats and neck warmers for Bedford Green residents. And the Bedford High School Interact Club made Valentine's Day cards. 

Thank you to everyone who donated and volunteered to make our residents' day full of love! #wearepeabody #StrongerTogether #residentevents #residentengagement #multifamilyhousing #bettertogether #communitysupport

We want to thank everyone who helped contribute to our "Checking with Purpose" campaign this past November by opening an account with us! Each of our regions have been able to bring their donations out to the Veteran's nonprofit they chose for this campaign and these donations wouldn't have been possible without your help! We are proud to be able to support such amazing community organizations.
What an incredible way to celebrate Veteran’s Day, and all the men and women who have served.....

Another rewarding event in the books!
God bless and keep all the incredible Veterans of WWII, Korean & Vietnam wars we met this morning in Tilton, NH at the New Hampshire Soldiers Home.
So many stories:
• Doris who enlisted in the Air Force after her brother was drafted. She was a radio and Morris Code communications specialist stationed in Paris during the German occupation.
• Joe who was in the Navy in the Pacific from 43-46 and worked on the B-29.
• Charles who was in S. America and worked as a Mine Sweeper. 
His father didn’t speak English and after Charles was drafted had to sign a release for his 17 year old son to serve and had no idea what he was signing...
• Sooo many laughs, stories & recollections...
We had the honor and privilege of meeting, thanking and chatting with over 50 men and women that sacrificed their lives for our freedom...we are humbled and filled with gratitude ❤️ .
Thank you to everyone that supports ‘iPods’! It’s because of your generous donations we are able to visit VA hospitals, homes and supportive housing throughout New England...
The thank you we show to our Veterans is from everyone! 🇺🇸 Thank you to our Sponsors @bose , ‘Reads and Deeds’, JoMarie O’Mahoney - President and Founder of We’re One Wilmington, the ‘Meat Raffle’ from the Parker Family’s camp ground and @cornelluniversity for your laptop donation.
