In July 2019, Facebook was extremely grateful to join the The ALS Association to commemorate the five-year anniversary of the Ice Bucket Challenge by calling on people to once again pour ice water over their heads. Our very own Emily Dalton Smith, Director, Product Management for Social Impact at Facebook was honored to speak alongside Governor Charlie Baker, Ice Bucket Challenge co-founder Pat Quinn, and Nancy Frates, Ice Bucket Challenge co-founder and Pete Frates' mom.
Facebook Boston sent a team of volunteers to Dorchester with Habitat for Humanity in June 2019! We had a great time shoveling and spreading gravel, putting together outer trim, and installing fire blockers - all while using power tools!! This was the second house in the neighborhood that Facebook Boston helped build through Habitat for Humanity.
