One of the main goals of Grand Circle Foundation is changing people’s lives—and on Saturday, April 24, we did just that. More than 140 Grand Circle associates, along with their family members and friends, spent the day painting, landscaping, and making homeowner Donna Shepard’s 100-year-old home in Dorchester, Massachusetts, a truly different place than the one she lived in before.
Here are some photos of Grand Circle associates sharing their labors of love:
