Family Promise’s volunteers and community partners are an important piece of our mission, which is why our February Community Spotlight will highlight PBF Energy employee and Family Promise volunteer Mike Veltri.
From volunteerism and donations to sponsoring our Homebound Hustle 5K for two years in a row, PBF Energy has supported Family Promise’s mission for nearly five years.
In 2022, PBF committed to completing a series of service projects for our agency, such as gardening, painting, and organizing items. Mike Veltri is one of many PBF staff members who have offered their time and talent to a variety of impactful Done in a Day projects at our Day Center. We are so grateful for this continued support!
This past summer, Mike spent the day beautifying our garden area, which included painting a picnic table for FP guest and staff enjoyment.
You can learn more about his experience below!
