The Good Neighbor Award is modeled closely after that given by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and recognizes real estate professionals for their community activism. Recipients of the award have made an extraordinary commitment to improving the quality of life in their communities through volunteer work.
Community Servings is a not-for-profit food and nutrition program that provides services throughout Massachusetts to individuals and families living with critical and chronic illnesses. They provide their clients – the dependent families and caregivers – with appealing, nutritious meals, which sends the message to those in need that someone is caring for them. The goals of Community Servings are to help their clients maintain their health and dignity and preserve the integrity of their families through free, culturally-appropriate, home-delivered meals, nutrition education, and other community programs. Ken is very involved in an annual program fundraiser called "Pie in the Sky". Pie in the Sky fosters community spirit and engages the public in Community Servings' mission. Every November, Boston's best restaurants, bakeries, caterers, and hotels donate thousands of pies that over 700 volunteers then sell to family, friends, and colleagues.
