Spreading Holiday Cheer at BPGS ConstructionDecember 17, 2015 3:57 pm
Here at BPGS Construction, an important part of our corporate culture is giving back to the local community. During the holiday season, this is especially prevalent through our Season of Giving.
In correlation with the Buccini/Pollin Group, BPGS Construction is participating in adopt-a-family. All of the adopt-a-families this year all came from the Southbridge Neighborhood House. Additionally, BPGS Construction and The Buccini/Pollin Group are “adopting” children for the holidays through the Kind to Kids Foundation.
Kind to Kids is a local non-profit here in Delaware that provides resources and aid to children in Delaware’s foster care system. Children are provided with a duffel bag including a book reminding them how special they are along with a hand-knit blanket to help ease their transition to a foster home. Additionally, Kind to Kids provides experiences and outings otherwise not available to them and provides life skills classes to the children.
Examples of life skills classes offered at Kind to Kids include making positive choices and hygiene for teenagers. For those aging out of the system, classes on preparing a budget, resume and interview skills help them get on their feet with a plan for their future. During the holidays, Kind to Kids ensures children in Delaware’s foster system have a Christmas through their annual toy and book drive.
