On behalf of the Milford Youth Commission and MYC staff, we would like to thank Benjamin Moore & Co. of Milford, and specifically Scott Kaplan, Distribution Center Manager, for organizing a volunteer project in the basement of the Youth Center! Employees of Benjamin Moore came on multiple days over the last few months to paint the entire floor and ceiling of the basement! In addition they painted our boxing room, painting all the polls “foul-line yellow” and put up a replica wall of the “Green Monster” adjacent to our batting cages! Benjamin Moore stored the wall for us during the renovation and we are so excited to have it finally up! The wall was actually used in a commercial in NY! This project, valued at over $15,000 of materials and labor has transformed the basement, allowing it to be available in time for batting cage rentals, CrossFit and so much more! It will also help with the general maintenance of the building! It’s due to the generosity of local businesses and individuals that we are able to continue to offer free after school programming, an affordable summer camp, and provide a safe and fun environment for the youth of Milford!
The Youth Center staff attended the annual “United Way Recognition Breakfast” at the Sheraton Hotel in Framingham. We were so pleased to help congratulate Ron Taylor, who was recognized as the United Way of Tri-County‘s “Volunteer of the Year” Finalist! Ron is an active volunteer here at the MYC, and you can find him in the building on most days: doing a project, helping out with the kids, or giving the staff some wisdom of the ages. He will be facilitating our new woodworking program in May as well. We look forward to this breakfast every year and give thanks to all that the United Way of Tri-County does for communities within the MetroWest/495 Corridor!
