Thanks For Your Help at the NBAA 2010 Community Build

You Touched the Lives of Over 500 Children at the Brookhaven Boys & Girls Club

Thank you for helping on the 2010 Community Build at the Brookhaven Boys & Girls Club. We know you had a lot to do while you were in Atlanta for the NBAA Annual Meeting & Convention, and we are enormously grateful that you took the time to volunteer for this worthwhile cause.

Brookhaven Boys & Girls Club Executive Director Bobby Dunn may have said it best at the opening ceremony on Build Day when he shared: "A lot of our kids feel that they're overlooked, but the fact that you're here proves to them that they're not."

You made a difference in the lives of over 500 Brookhaven Club kids! Thanks so very much.

A total of 264 Volunteers contributed to some truly special projects, including:

  • Building a New Playground
  • Refurbishing an Existing Playground
  • Repairing and Painting the Gymnasium
  • Building a Learning Garden
  • Clearing and Refurbishing the Walking Path
  • Repairing Baseball/Softball bleachers and viewing box
  • Painting the Pavilion and Asphalt Areas
