Former Boston Celtics player Walter McCarty, Back Bay resident Mil Ndwandwe, and Celtics Forward Jared Sullinger volunteer at the Victory Programs’ ReVision Family Home.

A Back Bay resident joined Boston Celtics players past and present to help improve Victory Programs’ ReVision Family Home.

Mil Ndwandwe, of the Back Bay, joined Celtics legend Walter McCarty and Boston Celtics Forward Jared Sullinger, and more than 90 volunteers from Sun Life Financial to paint and build furniture at the women’s shelter in Dorchester.

The volunteers, participating in Sun Life Financial’s annual Community Care Day, painted the halls and common area, replaced TV stands, made minor repairs, built picnic tables and planter benches, and redecorated with new curtains, wallpaper, and framed photos at the shelter that serves homeless women, their young families, and expectant mothers.

The group also planted trees at the ReVision Urban Farm, the program’s community-based urban agriculture project that provides residents of the home access to affordable and nutritious food.
