For several years, PMD has made it possible for busy people to contribute their time and heart to many worthy but under-resourced charities. PMD also invests in the volunteer capacity of Greater Boston through trainings, collaborations, and supporting Directors of Volunteer Administrators (DOVA). PMD & its founder & executive director Lori Tsuruda are an amazing resource for the nonprofit community here!

PMD does many things to help those in need. Not only do they help, but they are fun to do. It's one thing to want those in need to be helped, it's quite another to get your hands dirty and get involved in doing it yourself. That's true compassion. Changing the world, a little at a time.
