Thanks to incredible support from the Baltimore Ravens and M&T Bank, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Baltimore’s Webster Kendrick Club recently underwent an amazing makeover. Led by the Heart of America Foundation and Turner Construction’s oversight, more than 400 volunteers spent the first week of June finalizing the transformation of the Club. The commitment to the youth of Baltimore culminated with a ribbon cutting on June 5th.
Volunteers, including an array of Ravens players, rolled up their sleeves to paint, install new floors, build furniture, prepare a new STEAM lab, landscape, and last but not least, interact with the Boys & Girls Club members from Callaway Elementary School. Additionally, each of the more than 320 students at Callaway Elementary was gifted a new backpack full of supplies and books thanks to M&T Bank, the Baltimore Ravens, and the Heart of America Foundation.
On a monumental day for our organization, emotions filled the rooms of Webster Kendrick as members, volunteers, and staff walked the halls of the newly renovated facility for the first time. Seeing the excitement and pure joy from the students made the long days and hard work well worth it for everyone who helped make this exceptional makeover possible.
The much-needed renovation for the Webster Kendrick Boys & Girls Club supports our mission to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The Webster Kendrick Club now truly shows members, and the community they call home, that we care about and believe in them.
