Framingham – A local Dunkin” Donuts shop, located at 517 Worcester Rd. in Framingham, recently donated $5,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest to send local kids to summer camp for eight weeks. This shop, along with a neighboring Dunkin” Donuts, operates under a small, independently owned franchisee based out of North Reading. Members of the franchisee's executive team presented the check at the Framingham Clubhouse Aug. 16 and had a chance to meet some of the great kids that attend the Club every day.
“We appreciate the continued generosity of the Scrivanos family,” said Fran Hurley, President of the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest. “Especially during these challenging times, our youth need a positive outlet for their energy and the opportunity to have fun in a safe environment. This is the fifth consecutive year that the great people at the Worcester Road Dunkin Donuts are helping to make that happen for our local kids.”
The Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest (BGCMW) offers summer programs in Framingham, Hudson and Marlborough and over 350 youth enjoy BGCMW's summer programs each day, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thanks to the generosity of donors like the Scrivanos family, BGCMW is able to distribute over $80,000 in summer scholarships each year to the children and youth that need help the most.
“We have had the pleasure of working with the Boys and Girls Club of MetroWest over the past few years on a variety of projects, just as we have enjoyed being supporters of the youth they serve,” remarked Patricia Lincoln, a member of the Scrivanos team. “Seeing the children's faces light up as we walked into the Framingham Clubhouse reminded us, that through the hard work of everyone at the Boys and Girls Club of MetroWest, our local children are being provided a fun, safe, and secure environment to call “home.” We know just how important families and local communities are; therefore, we look forward to building these children a better future and improving the quality of life for all BGCMW Members and their families.”
The Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest serves over 3,500 children and youth each year with a low membership fee of only $25 per child, which makes it one of the largest and most affordable Boys & Girls Club organizations in Massachusetts.
