GAW receives thoughtful grant for $1,850 from Boston Bruins Foundation

Girls at Work, Inc. were very thankful to be chosen by the Boston Bruins Foundation to receive a grant of $1,850 to help with their mission. By placing real tools in the hands of young girls, our builders become unstoppable and recognize how forceful they are in all they pursue.

The Boston Bruins Foundation is committed to supporting organizations that have a positive impact on the New England community, and are particularly pleased to invest in Girls at Work because their work is so closely aligned with the Foundation’s priorities.

“It is wonderful that an organization like the Boston Bruins Foundation is so connected and committed to the surrounding communities and the work we are all doing to make a stronger tomorrow.” said Elaine Hamel, founder and program director of Girls at Work.
