In 2012, she nominated St. Martin DePorres Senior Center in Providence for “Coins for a Cause,” and they received food and monetary donations that enabled them to continue feeding the hungry.

In addition to her volunteer work, Malissa is active in the community hosting speaking engagements and working with advocates to educate as many people as possible about Medicare.
