Justin McCleary Memorial Fund
This fund has been established by the Mayor’s Office of Civic Engagement and Volunteer Service (MOCEVS) to honor their dear colleague and friend, Justin A. McCleary (May 21, 1985–December 14, 2022).
MOCEVS has shared the following message in memory of their colleague:
Justin was a special person with whom we had the pleasure of working while he served as the Outreach and Recruitment Coordinator for the Serve Philadelphia VISTA Program in our office. Justin was a passionate advocate for the communities of Philadelphia and was deeply committed to ensuring that the VISTA Corps was demographically representative of the city. Justin had a unique style and was never afraid to encourage us all to “treat ourselves” and practice self-care in whatever way was meaningful to each of us. We are eternally grateful for the time that we were able to spend with Justin. Justin’s memory lives on through us and those he touched with his life and work.
To honor Justin’s legacy of supporting his community through volunteer service, donations to this fund will go directly towards the AmeriCorps Financial Assistance Fund to provide emergency financial support to Serve Philadelphia VISTA members.
