The Bainbridge Companies, a leading apartment developer and owner and manager of luxury communities, donated 20 bicycles to members of the Delray Beach Boys and Girls Club in Delray Beach, Fla.
The bikes were built by Bainbridge team members at the company’s recent Managers Retreat in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. Twenty kids, ranging in age from 6 to 16, visited the retreat to pick up their bicycles.
“Just building the bikes and knowing the joy it would bring to these wonderful children and teenagers would have been enough,” says Kevin Keane (below), Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Bainbridge and a member of the Delray Beach Boys & Girls Club Board of Directors. “But we were all floored when they arrived at the retreat, and we were able to give them their new bikes in person. It was an extremely impactful and emotional experience for all involved. The Bainbridge team will never forget that moment.”
“We are extremely grateful for our relationship with Bainbridge,” says Jaene Miranda, President and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County. “Strong partnerships like these strengthen our reach and make it possible for us to take care of thousands of Palm Beach County children in need.”
The mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County is to enable all young people, especially those in need, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.
“The children we serve come from some of Palm Beach County’s most disadvantaged areas and live at or below the poverty level. With support from partners like Bainbridge, we can offer important resources these children need to provide real hope for the future,” Miranda said.
“From robotics and music programs to complete college preparation for teens, Boys & Girls Clubs provides essential tools for success and an encouraging support system to help them navigate through some of life’s toughest situations.”
