Sunday December 9, associates from Kensington Investment Company, Grand Circle Travel, and the Lewis Family Foundation hosted a special Holiday Party for families at the BCYF Shelburne Center in Roxbury. Ms. Alfreda R. Harris, founder of the Shelburne Center, and Administrative Coordinator Dianne Galloway welcomed associates for an afternoon full of activities for the 15 families.
During the event, associates joined parents and children in decorating miniature trees, personalizing and hanging stockings, sharing a delicious meal, and enjoying a visit from Santa. Ms. Harris later shared that “the families can’t stop talking about how fun the party was. The kids absolutely had a great time, but the joy on each parent’s face was special.” Ms. Galloway extended a deep appreciation to the associates for their generosity; each family received a bag full of gifts. Altogether, over 240 gifts were purchased and wrapped by associates for the families!
