One response to “MFi volunteer awards

  1. Hi Pete,

    This is so great. I am so humbled to have been nominated. What a nice thing this is that the MFi does. Thank you, thank you.

    I do want to make a correction on one group’s name — New Life Home Refurnishing is a Medfield non-profit with their warehouse in Walpole. They are always on the lookout for volunteers and gently used furniture and household items, so it’s great to get their name out there.

    Again, many thanks! Susan
