Employee Spotlight: Zhivko Yanev
Zhivko Yanev has been zipping around MA streets, picking up donations, for 8 yrs. He goes simply by "Z," but there is nothing plain about his amazing work ethic & efficiency.

Z's Slavic accent adds an international flavor to the Foundation, and his appreciation of being quiet in nature - he is an avid fisherman - is a lesson to us all.

W
e are thankful Z is a member of our team!
