Some people will go the extra mile to make a difference in their community. The employees of Fannie Mae demonstrated this past May that they do make a difference. During the week of May 9th, teams of Fannie employees descended on the community with the goal to serve those in need. The effort is part of their Serving, Engaged & Ready Volunteer Employees (SERVE) community service program. For Pathway Homes, the goal was to focus on the outdoor landscaping work that residents often cannot do themselves. On May 10th, employees split into two teams, accomplishing twice as much work, at two Pathways properties in Springfield. On May 12th, a third team of Fannie Mae employees worked at a property in Alexandria. Their work included trimming bushes, pulling weeds, raking, putting down mulch, creating a backyard vegetable garden, painting a screened porch, building a wooden bench, painting a garden shed, assembling a picnic table, installing landscape lighting, and even helping to remove construction debris. The impact of their work was immediately visible, giving residents at these three houses the chance to enjoy their home, both on the inside and outside.
