John Dunleavy, recipient of the Philip Donahue Employee of the Year Award

Named after Philip Donahue, who retired in 2022 after 27 years of loyal service to Market Basket, MDSC’s Employee of the Year Award was presented at the MDSC 40th Anniversary Conference at the DCU Center on March 24.

The honor went to Boston Bruins veteran employee John Dunleavy of Winchester. After 13 years in his position, John remains a dedicated employee at the TD Garden, where he delivers mail, maintains photocopiers, fills orders, handles Bruins and Celtics ticketing, and replenishes the break room. John has effortlessly established himself as an institution on Causeway Street — just by being himself.

The award was presented by Philip’s beloved brother Richard Donahue.

Boston Bruins Foundation President Bob Sweeney joined John on stage to accept the award.
