This year, the Cambridge Housing Authority relied heavily on its amazing maintenance staff to help ensure that CHA residents do not get left behind in the fight against COVID — and without hesitation, they delivered in every sense of the word. Our crews were present at CHA properties throughout the pandemic, implementing safety plans and facilitating deep cleaning efforts across our sites, especially at our senior living communities. If a resident was in quarantine, our team members would work with them to properly dispose of trash and recycling, as well as bringing groceries, deliveries, and mail to their door.
Their selflessness and commitment to CHA’s mission is inspiring.
In addition to going above and beyond for our residents in 2020, this past holiday season, members of the CHA maintenance team organized to contribute a bulk donation of toy items to a local bank’s “Toys for the Neighborhood Drive” to benefit children living in Cambridge— an incredible gesture during a difficult season for many. This was done in addition to the CHA’s annual “Frosty” program, in which employees provide holiday gifts to families being served by a partnering organization in the community.
The selflessness of our maintenance team comes second to none. They are the embodiment of “One CHA.”
