Dorchester, MA – On Thursday, December 21, 2017, Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh joined the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades District Council 35  to present the Dorchester Boys & Girls Club a $10,000 check and toys. The donation will help fund more than 200 programs offered by the Club to over 4000 children in the community.

Speaking at today’s event, Mayor Marty Walsh said, “I would like to thank District Council 35 The Painters Union for their contribution today to the Dorchester Boys and Girls Club. This union is very active with the community and we appreciate everything they have done for us.”

“DC35 is committed to helping communities and building the future of Boston. We are proud to donate this money to the Dorchester Boys & Girls Club that provides much-needed assistance and support to children. In light of the opioid crisis, safe and stable environments like this Club are important now more than ever,” said Jeff SullivanBusiness Manager/Secretary-Treasurer of DC35.

“We are so grateful for this donation from DC35. The Boys and Girls Club is now serving children from as young as two months all the way to eighteen years old for only $5.00 a year, so it is affordable for everyone and offers high-quality programming,” said Mary Kinsella Scannell, Vice President of the Boys & Girls Club of Dorchester.  “Children can come here after school to do their homework, do constructive activities, and even have a hot meal with their parents.”
