Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade hosted the “We Care” Celebration, a national initiative between Herman Miller and Boys and Girls Club of America to provide kids a variety of craft materials and encourage them to make holiday gifts and cards for family and friends.
On Dec. 9 at the club’s Hank Kline facility, hundreds of volunteers from local architectural and interior design firms joined together to share their artistic vision with the youngsters.
Some of the organizations that participated included: Perkins Will, Office Furniture Warehouse, Miami Dade County GSA, Miami-Dade Aviation, G3, Leo A. Daly, MGE, MC Harry & Associates, TSAO Design, Gipsy’s Art, Brad Horton with Workplace Resource and Corporate Design Choice.
“We are honored that our club was chosen to participate in the “We Care” initiative,” said Alex Rodriguez-Roig, executive director of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade. “It’s great to know that 130 kids from our club can bring home a gift for a family member this holiday season.”
The “We Care” Celebration included entertainment, arts and crafts, snacks and a special visit from Santa Claus.
The Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami have served the community since 1940 with a wide variety of programs including educational enrichment, summer camps, sports coaching and leagues.
