On September 18, the YMCA participated in Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts' (BCBSMA) third annual company-wide Service Day, One Community. One Blue.  Fifty BCBSMA associates descended on the Roxbury YMCA building planters to be used for educational gardens.  The volunteers also helped to create a warm and inviting entrance in our walkway through landscaping, painted our after school spaces, picked up litter around the Y and disinfected hundreds of toys from our preschool classrooms.  A big thank you to the Blue Crew!

The Blue Crew: 

They painted our facilities.

They disinfected hundreds of toys.

They helped move this giant pile of rocks.

Now, we have a new bike rack station as a result!

They replanted our hostas.

Look at how beautiful the walkway to the Roxbury YMCA looks! 

Again, a big thank you to the Blue Crew!  Your hard work is much appreciated and we couldn't do this without you.
