Why is the JFK Library Foundation an enthusiastic supporter of Peace Corps Connect – Boston 2013?
By Erica Burman on Wednesday, May 15th, 2013
Peace Corps Connect – Boston 2013 is just around the corner. Among those helping to make it happen? Our sponsors. We are pleased that the first major sponsor of the annual gathering in Boston this year is the JFK Library Foundation.
“The Kennedy Library Foundation is pleased to support the National Peace Corps Association’s Peace Corps Connect event being held in our home city of Boston,” said Tom McNaught, Executive Director of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation. “The Peace Corps was one of the most important achievements of John F. Kennedy’s presidency and he lives on in each lesson taught, school built, child healed, crop planted, well dug, and person touched by a Peace Corps volunteer. Their commitment to President Kennedy’s vision of service inspires us in our work here at the JFK Library every day. We hope that Returned Peace Corps Volunteers will visit the Kennedy Presidential Library while in town to celebrate their legacy.”
