Aaron’s Donates $28k Worth of Upgrades to O’Donnell Heights Boys & Girls Club
Regional managers from Aaron’s Inc. met this week to provide community service and financial contributions to the O’Donnell Heights Boys & Girls Club in Baltimore, Maryland. The company donated $28,000 worth of upgrades for the organization’s teen room along with volunteering time to patch up and paint the space.
“Just to see the kids smile is enough,” says Billy Hardison, regional manager of Aaron’s Baltimore. “To give high-risk youths the opportunity to come to a safe place to relax, have fun and just be a kid is the greatest reward.”
The O’Donnell Heights Boys & Girls Club services 50 to 60 kids on a daily basis and the teen room renovations will help bring more kids into the organization. “We had some couches and televisions, but now thanks to Aaron’s, kids will want to come spend time here,” says Matthew Death, vice president of corporate and business partnerships of the Boys & Girls Club of Metropolitan Baltimore. “This is a complete wish list—a dream of what our youths want.”
The event marked the 24th refresh by Aaron’s in communities across the United States. Aaron’s community outreach project was recognized by local television station WJZ.
