The Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield, a youth development organization providing programs and services to children and families throughout the greater South Shore community, is pleased to announce Rockland Federal Credit Union has renewed their corporate partnership with the Club for 2020.
Rockland Federal Credit Union has been a longtime supporter of the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield. They were a large supporter of the Club’s new building campaign when the Club moved from a 4,000 square foot storefront to their Proprietor’s Drive location. The current state-of-the-art 17,000 square foot clubhouse officially opened its doors in June, 2012 and includes a gymnasium, arts center, elementary games room, learning center, computer lab, kitchen, teen center, pool and playground.
Rockland Federal Credit Union also gave a large gift in support of the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield’s recent Outdoor Clubhouse Expansion Project. The Outdoor Classroom is a designated fenced-in area containing flower and vegetable gardens, a patio and seating area that supports Club programming such as natural sciences, nutrition and art classes.
“Rockland Federal Credit Union has been a proud community partner of the Marshfield Boys & Girls Club for 14 years,” said Karen Macedo of Rockland Federal Credit Union. “We believe in supporting the programs and services offered by the Boys & Girls Club, which help make a difference in the lives of those within our community.”
“We are very thankful to Rockland Federal Credit Union for their generosity and ongoing support which ultimately helps us to deliver programs that are the cornerstone of youth development and fulfill our mission in the community,” said Jim Bunnell, CEO Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield.
The Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield has hundreds of member families and serves more than 5,000 youth annually from all across the South Shore in afterschool, school vacation and summer camp programs.
