The DMA team took a hands-on approach to community service on August 4th, committing a day’s labor to causes members care about in Chicago and Boston. DMA’s Chicago office team pitched in at the construction site of a home being built by the Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity. Team members measured, cut and applied siding, among other tasks, enjoying the opportunity to stretch collaborative skills in new ways and create needed affordable housing. For more than a decade, DMA’s Tim Feldballe has volunteered in leadership roles with Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity.

In Boston, team member Karen Urosevich spent the day at Women’s Lunch Place, an organization she has supported since 2015. Located in the heart of the Back Bay in the basement of one of the city’s most iconic churches, Women’s Lunch Place provides gourmet meals, daytime shelter, job resources, laundry facilities, and other services to women. Karen had previously volunteered in the kitchen but had the first-time opportunity this time to participate in the Friday lunch service, when guests are served restaurant-style. Karen enjoyed the chance to interact with guests outside the kitchen and deepen her connection to this nonprofit.
