Our Day at the Boys & Girls Club of Dorchester

Redfin Volunteering TeamRecently, the Boston-area Redfin office spent some time volunteering our time with the Dorchester Boys & Girls Club.

For those of you who haven’t experienced this incredible organization, the Boys & Girls Club provides area youth with much-needed activities in a positive environment. In this particularly violent and hot summer, these brave people truly make a difference in the lives of many children through their dedication and day-in, day-out hard work.

We spent a humid day clearing out the basement and storage spaces of the club, getting rid of trash and organizing unused donations. With the help of many hands, we made quick work of the debris. The center was ramping up for their busy summer season and readying the club for the summer session, during which it hosts over 250 children all week long. The facilities are truly incredible, and we were just happy to have been able to help out.

This is the second time the Boston Redfin office has volunteered with the Boys & Girls Club, and we want to thank the organization for giving us another great opportunity to come together and strengthen our team while doing a little good in the world.

We plan to return again in the future — please email me if you would like to know more about the Boys & Girls Club, and to find out how you can help this worthy cause.

    It's nice to see your company is involved with the community. Even one short day in front of kids who don't have anyone to look up to can provide them the motivation and desire to work hard so they have a good future to look forward to. Especially during these tough economic days. Perhaps 2012 and the near future is better for al of us.
    Thanks for sharing your involvement in the community.
