Unity through Community
2016 was an exhausting and polarizing year. Here at ATC, we truly believe in the healing power of giving back to the community. Thankfully, we are not alone in that belief. Below are 4 other organizations that share our devotion to community.
Joy in Childhood Foundation- Since 2006, JCF has been providing the simple joys of childhood to kids facing hunger and sickness in communities across the country. Their dedication to making the world a better place is just one of the many reasons why we are proud to be associated with the great work they are doing. For more information please visit www.dunkinbrands.com/foundation.
Cross Roads for Kids- Crossroads has one main goal: “to empower youth to unlock their potential and positively impact the world.” Crossroads ensures the success of their young people by providing students with summer and school-year programs that support them to become economically independent citizens, socially responsible leaders and emotionally connected adults. Their efforts have resulted in 95% of their C5 Leaders program graduates achieving college acceptance. For more information please visit www.crossroadsma.org
Rodman for Kids- RK hosts the number one single-day athletic fundraiser in the nation supporting at-risk kids! Their mission is “to have every kid live as we would want our kids to live.” RK is an umbrella matching gift charity raising funds for youth-focused social-service organizations. RK and its affiliated charities fundraise year-round, culminating with the Ride for Kids event every September. ATC is proud to be affiliated with RK and can’t wait to take part in the Ride for Kids event this September for the 5th straight year! For more information please visit www.rodmanforkids.org
Old Colony Y- Their main commitment is the development of strong spirit, mind, and body, guided by Judeo Christian principles, and to enrich the quality of life for everyone in their communities. Established in 1887, they served 140,525 people the last fiscal year through mental health counseling, supportive shelters and many other programs! They believe in the essential building blocks for youth’s successful growth and development and we believe in Old Colony Y. For more information please visit www.oldcolonyymca.org
These organizations are so important because during testing times we sometimes need to be reminded that there is still so much good in the world. Now get out there and help us make the world a better place! Wishing you and your communities a prosperous and unified new year.
