Volunteers Transform Ctr. for Women and Children
AGC and 50 Construction Companies and Organizations Participate
Dorchester, MA – More than 150 volunteers representing the Association of General Contractors (AGC) of Massachusetts rallied on May 15 to transform the Dorchester campus of St. Mary’s Center for Women and Children. The day-long project brought an unprecedented level of capital and professional support to the aging facility, formerly St. Margaret’s Hospital. More than 600 women and children receive shelter, education, and job training at St. Mary’s Center annually.
The project’s value, estimated at $250,000, improved the facility, creating a more functional space for the agency’s six programs.
Mayor Martin Walsh and his Office of Neighborhood Services along with Boston City Councilor Frank Baker have advocated for the families of St. Mary’s Center and played an integral role in making this service project possible. Boston City Councilor Frank Baker, ISD Commissioner William Christopher and Police Commissioner William Evans, along with members from 50 organizations, took part in the day of service.
Companies taking leadership roles included Berkeley Building Company, BOND Brothers, Central Ceilings, Commodore Builders, Elaine Construction, Gilbane Building Company, Marc Truant & Assoc., and NEI General Contracting.
