A Program of the Town of Milford and the United Way of Tri-County

Thank you Hope and Comfort Inc.

Thank you to Pat Flaherty from Hope and Comfort Inc. for donating four boxes of hygiene kits to the Youth Center. Hope and Comfort is a non-profit whose mission is to provide essential hygiene products to support and improve the health, self-esteem, and hygiene education of school aged children and young adults in need, within the greater Boston area. Hope and comfort carries out their mission by working with a distribution network that includes multiple food pantries, children’s organization, and human services organizations. Donated items are sorted and delivered to organizations within this network. These organizations distribute the products to children and adults who currently go without. The Youth Center is so happy to have created a partnership with such a great organization and we look forward to working with them now and in the future.

BE Part of the MYC Telethon!

Join the MYC and Milford TV for our Telethon on Saturday, August 19, 2017 from 4-10 PM. In an effort to help the Center, after State funding was cut, Milford TV offered to join forces and put on a telethon to draw attention to the Youth Center’s endeavors to finish our music room and studio,  areas that were not a part of the scope of the renovation.
We are currently looking for sponsors for this event to help kick off the fundraising! Any donation would be appreciated and would go a long way to help our MYC Music Room & Studio come to fruition! Sponsors will have their company, organizations or individuals name presented throughout the Telethon! The telethon will be aired on Milford TV (Comcast 8 and Verizon 38; Streaming live at MilfordTV.net)
We are also looking for different acts and permormances to be part of the telethon on the day of the show! We currently have a great group of bands and singers that have committed and will annouce them all at a later date!
As always, we appreciate the support from the community and thank Milford TV for their time and hero with planning this event with us! Thank you Ray Auger for our awesome flier as well! If you are interested in sponsorship, performing or volunteering, please call the Center at 508-473-1756 or email milfordyouthcenter@comcast.net
