The North Central Massachusetts Association of Realtors has partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Fitchburg and Leominster to ensure that the youth of our area have great futures.

“Realtors help build neighborhoods and communities, and volunteering time and resources with BGCA gives us the opportunity to help enrich and improve the lives of the young people in these communities,” said Michelle Haggstrom, president of the North Central Massachusetts Association of Realtors.

Members rallied together to volunteer at several posts during the 5K fundraising event to support the Boys & Girls Club. NCMAR members Kathryn Weldon manned the hydroblaster, Locke Haman and Tom Ruble fired up the grill to provide a hearty lunch, and Executive Officer Kathy Lore, Pat Toth, April Cover, Brian Cormier, Susan Roser and Haggstrom assisted with pre-race activities such as registration, bib and T-shirt pickup. The funds raised from the 5K race will be used to continue the many beneficial programs at the local Boys & Girls Club.

The North Central Massachusetts Association of Realtors is the most trusted resource for real estate information in Northern Worcester County, and the Boys & Girls Club of America is the premier youth development organization in the U.S. Both organizations have come together to make an ever greater difference in the community.

“We are proud to partner with the North Central Massachusetts Association of Realtors and their members. This partnership will have an immediate and profound impact on our club, our communities and most importantly, our city’s young people,” said Donata Martin, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Fitchburg and Leominster. “We look forward to this partnership and working together on volunteer projects, club improvements and mentoring, as well as fundraising and awareness initiatives to enable more young people to achieve great futures.”
