Pine Street Inn

N&D employees volunteered for the annual holiday Chop-a-Thon at the Pine Street Inn, a Boston organization that helps homeless individuals find and retain permanent housing as well as job opportunities. Employees chopped vegetables and prepared food for use in the Inn’s holiday celebrations.

In late 2020, N&D donated $5,000 of socks produced by Neon Bandits, a local Boston company, for those in need during the pandemic.
