Wayland Neighbor Brigade is the founding chapter of Neighbor Brigade and started in 2003 as “Wayland Angels.” It all started with a small group of friends helping friends. Today we are 400+ volunteers strong! Many thanks to our volunteers who have always jumped to action when they learn of a friend or neighbor in the community who could use some TLC. Why do we do what we do? Because it feels good. Because we care. We have delivered over a thousand meals and countless rides, helped with dog walking, local errands, and grocery shopping for our neighbors. And we gladly support our local churches with their holiday meals for families in need. Neighbor Brigade has become a household name in our community…thank you to all of our local volunteers and supporters for being a part of what we do!!
Anne is co-leader of the founding chapter of Neighbor Brigade. She has lived in Wayland for 27 years, with her husband Mark and four sons. Anne grew up in Baltimore and graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in psychology, but has adopted New England as her home. She owns a private preschool in Lincoln and enjoys her days teaching four-year-olds and serving as co-director. Anne was inspired to join Neighbor Brigade in its mission after meeting Pam Washek and Jean Seidon, the founders of this incredible community support system.
