RCN Boston Makes Food Donation to Bridge Over Troubled Waters

RCN Donates Over 200 Food Items

(Boston, MA) – January 30, 2019 – RCN Boston recently made food donations to Bridge Over Troubled Waters, a Boston-based nonprofit that provides services for homeless and struggling youth at the most defining time in their lives. With the help of employees, RCN Boston was able to donate over 200 food items. This food will be distributed to the runaway, homeless and at-risk youth that Bridge Over Troubled Waters provides services for.

“The generosity of the RCN Boston employees in collecting and donating food to Bridge Over Troubled Waters will help support the services provided by Bridge.” said RCN Boston VP and General Manager Jeff Carlson. “We are continually inspired by the work that Bridge does to help at-risk youth turnaround their lives.”

RCN has been a longtime supporter of Bridge Over Troubled Waters. For the last four years, RCN Boston’s annual golf tournament in June has raised thousands of dollars to support Bridge’s programs and services including Street Outreach, Mobile Medical Van, Counseling, Education and Career Development, Transitional Day Program, Emergency and Transitional Residences, Welcome Center and the new Cooperative Apartments.

“We are very thankful for RCN Boston’s continued support, especially from this latest supply drive from its employees,” said Elisabeth Jackson, Executive Director of Bridge Over Troubled Waters. “Having partners in the community like RCN Boston gives us the ability to help more youth establish their own futures beyond our services to full independence.”
