BOSTON, MA — BGCD would like to thank Steel & Rye in Milton who prepared 100 Thanksgiving dinners for our families. Owner, Dan Kerrigan and his entire team spent days preparing the dinners. We would also like to thank all the volunteers who helped distribute meals on Thanksgiving morning.

This is the second year that Dan and his staff and volunteers at Steel & Rye have stepped up for our families at Thanksgiving and we could not be more grateful. It is because friends and partners like those at Steel & Rye who play a major role in what we do to help our children and families!
