SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Four not-for-profit organizations in the Springfield area received thousands of dollars from MGM Springfield to help them continue the work they are already doing in the community.
On Tuesday, MGM Springfield President, Chris Kelley, presented $15,000 checks each to Link to Libraries, Dress for Success Western Massachusetts, The Boys & Girls Club of Springfield, and the YWCA of Western Massachusetts.
Boys and Girls Club Executive Director Vinnie Borello told 22News, the jobs program helps prepare these children with the proper work ethic, “It’s not just a summer program. We are now looking to the school year to extend this program. Give the kids all the skills they need for employment.”
The funding was made possible through fundraisers by MGM employees and monies awarded through corporate grants.
