From the Boys and Girls Club:
Watch the Worcester Police and Fire Departments Battle it Out for Worcester’s Youth!
Join the Boys & Girls Club of Worcester, United Way of Central Massachusetts, the Worcester Police Department, and the Worcester Fire Department on Friday, November 17, for the ultimate dodgeball tournament!
Members of the Police and Fire Departments will go head to head in a friendly game of dodgeball to help kick off the United Way campaign, which helps support the 6,000 youth we serve each year at the Boys & Girls Club of Worcester, as well as many other community non-profit organizations.
Our Club kids will get in on the fun too! Our youth will host their own dodgeball battles, where kids of all ages will play against their friends and fellow Club members!
To show your support for the Boys & Girls Club of Worcester and the United Way of Central Massachusetts, please make sure to purchase a ticket for $5/piece (pay at the door) to watch some of our favorite community members put their own spin on a classic game.
The action will start at 6 p.m. at the Boys & Girls Club of Worcester, located at 65 Tainter St.
Questions? Please contact Louise O’Neill at the United Way of Central Massachusetts at (508) 757-5631 ext. 284 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you there!
Highlighting Our Nation’s Veterans
The Wealth of Veterans Report
The U.S. Census Bureau has released a new report “The Wealth of Veterans” that uses data from the 2014 Survey of Income and Program Participation to look at how military service may influence the lifelong financial well-being of veterans.
The report describes differences in the components of wealth between male veteran householders and nonveteran householders 25 years and older.
