Care Free Homes received the LIVE UNITED Award during last night’s Live United Celebration, an annual event that honors the many individuals and organizations who support United Way of Greater New Bedford.

Here was the introduction given to Care Free Homes by Allison Yates-Berg, UWGNB Vice President of Community Impact and Operations.

“The Live United Award has been awarded to individuals or organizations that go above and beyond and not only give, not only advocate, and not only volunteer- they do all 3!

This year’s recipient is a business and family we know we can always count on. The business is a big supporter of our work and finds any way to include us on

Hunger Heroes United Way of Greater New Bedford

Care Free Homes Marketing Coordinator, Stephanie Pickup, volunteering with her 4 children at the UWGNB Hunger Heroes Project.

promotions they are running, such as their New Year, New Roof Campaign. The family is always quick to volunteer at our events such as Hunger Heroes and rarely says no to another volunteer opportunity like when they volunteered this past summer at the Mobile Market – just about every week. We even joked that Stephanie became our Mobile Market queen as she became a huge advocate for the program and would recruit more friends and family to join her each week.

Additionally, they are supporters of Live United 365 and Holiday Wishes.

It is my pleasure to present the Live United Award to Care Free Homes and the Pickup Family. They truly embrace what it means to Live United by giving, advocating, and volunteering throughout the year.”
