Duxbury High School Football Visits BGCD: Members of the Duxbury High School Football Team made their annual trek to Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester to host an afternoon of fun and games for our members last week. A group of our members returned the favor by attending the football team’s most recent game last Friday night in Duxbury. The Duxbury football team hosted and successfully defeated Silver Lake as our Club members supported and cheered them on!

The Duxbury program has supported BGCD over the past five years with clinics as well as coat drives, gifts for the holidays and more.

Thanks to all of the team members for spending the afternoon with us and good luck to them as they finish off the rest of their season!

FIND OUT WHAT’S INSIDE

Boston Globe Community Care Day: Volunteer employees from The Boston Globe visited Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester last Thursday for their Annual Community Care Day event. Volunteers spent the day painting the gymnasium space for Club members to enjoy.

The Boston Globe has been visiting BGCD every fall for the past twenty seven years to help out with facility improvements. Our thanks to all of the volunteers who took part and to the Boston Globe for their support of our members.

Our Club hosts a variety of Corporate Community Care days throughout the year. To learn more about how to get involved with other volunteer opportunities or partnerships at the Club, please contact Mike Joyce at mjoyce@bgcdorchester.org.

DID YOU KNOW

BGCD Partners with Local Ninety Nine Restaurants: It’s BGCD month at your local Ninety Nine Restaurants! Be sure to stop by Ninety Nine Restaurant locations in Braintree and Quincy this month because every Sunday in October, kids eat free! Plus you can take the opportunity to help support our Clubhouses with awesome raffles, bake-sales and more!

In addition to the funds raised from this partnership, we are also looking forward to our annual ceremony held at the Ninety Nine Restaurant in Quincy honoring our Youth of the Year. The member is named in the spring and the ceremony will recognize a youth who works incredibly hard throughout the year and gives them the chance to receive some much deserved recognition for their work in the community. We are grateful to the Ninety Nine Restaurant for providing our members with these unique opportunities.
