CONNECT THE DOT

Keystone Club Volunteers at Christmas in the City: Members of the Keystone Club arrived at the Massachusetts Convention Center to help with pre-party wrapping and decorating for the Annual Christmas in the City event. Keystone Club members recently volunteered at the Polar Express event and will be returning to the City of Boston’s Annual Senior First Night celebration at the Seaport World Trade Center later this month.

We are excited to see our Keystone members getting involved and volunteering in the community so often this holiday season.

For any questions regarding how your child can get involved with volunteering through the Club, please contact Brendan McDonald at bmacdonald@bgcdorchester.org.

FIND OUT WHAT’S INSIDE

BGCD Partners with Boch Center for the Performing Arts: An Annual tradition returned to Dorchester this December as we partnered with the Boch Center for the Performing Arts to host three interactive readings of “The Grinch.” Sessions were held for our after-school programs at the Marr and Walter Denney Clubhouses as well as a session for our Early Education & Care programs.

Members of all ages enjoyed listening and following along with this classic holiday story. Many thanks to our friends at the Boch Center for making this opportunity available to our members.

Please visit our website at bgcdorchester.org to learn more about the ways you can help support the Club and our members this holiday season.

DID YOU KNOW

BGCD Takes Part in Play Your Part Toy Party: This past week BGCD partnered with the Toy Foundation to host the Play Your Part Event with over 250 Club members attending. With donations of thousands of toys from many of the major toy companies and an army of volunteers from those respective companies on hand our members enjoyed a day of music, games, dinner and each left with a bag full of toys.

Many thanks to the Toy Foundation for their support of the event as well as event sponsors: ASTRA, Educational Insights, Empire Group, LEGO, Schylling, Thames & Kosmos, TOMY and Unruly Studios. We would also like to thank our friends at the I.B.E.W. Local 103, Paul Revere Transportation, NIKE South Bay, NIKE Newbury Street, Blackrock Investment Management, Flavio D. Photography and Karen Diep for their support of the event.
