RCN Boston Continues to Help Homeless and At-Risk Youth by Supporting Bridge Over Troubled Waters
(Boston, MA) — July 10, 2019 — RCN Boston, a leading provider of Internet, digital TV and phone services, announced today that its annual golf tournament raised more than $15,000 for Bridge Over Troubled Waters, a Boston-based nonprofit that provides services for homeless and struggling youth at the most defining time in their lives. This is the fifth year that RCN Boston’s golf tournament has supported Bridge’s programs and services which include Street Outreach, Mobile Medical Van, Counseling, Education and Career Development, Transitional Day Program, Emergency and Transitional Residences, Welcome Center and the new Cooperative Apartments. After the tournament, RCN Boston’s Sr. Director of Sales and Marketing, Paul Panagopoulos presented the donation to Melissa Cording, Bridge Over Troubled Waters Director of Development.
“RCN is now in our fifth year of supporting Bridge Over Troubled Waters through our annual golf tournament and it is truly rewarding to see the impact that our donations have made to help at-risk and homeless youth,” said Jeff Carlson, SVP and General Manager, RCN Boston. “Bridge does a great job of helping kids who have little support to turn around their lives and set them on a path of independence.”
In addition to the donation from the golf tournament, RCN also supported Bridge with a food drive during the holidays. The RCN Golf Tournament was held on Tuesday, June 12, 2019, at Sandy Burr Country Club in Wayland, Massachusetts.
“RCN’s support is more critical than ever before as youth homelessness is growing at a rapid pace and we are serving more kids who need help,” said Elisabeth Jackson, Executive Director of Bridge Over Troubled Waters. “RCN’s generosity over the past five years has meant so much to us as we carry out our mission to provide our kids with the support they need to lead healthy, productive lives.”
Since 1970, Bridge has served more than 100,000 youth in the greater Boston area.
