Volunteers from Morgan Stanley spent the day painting and gardening at Barrier Free Living’s (BFL) transitional housing shelter for people with disabilities on June 10 as part of the Federation of Protestant Welfare‘s (FPWA) summer corporate service day.

The energetic group painted and refurbished a kitchen area and office, as well as weeding and planting the shelter’s garden area where residents gather.

“These few hours of service impact the lives of our residents for months to come,” says Scott Hess, Director of Communications at BFL. “A brightly painted room, a garden with new blooms can make a big difference for a resident who is having a tough day. We are so grateful to both Morgan Stanley and the FPWA for the support.”
