Verizon Volunteers Celebrate At Santa Monica Boys & Girls Club “Summer Fun Day”:

Verizon FiOS Southern California dedicated a $2,500 donation and volunteer efforts to the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Monica during their “Summer Fun Day” to celebrate Verizon’s commitment to contributing to and improving the center’s technology assets.

The day held last Friday included a guest appearance from the Verizon FiOS vehicles outfitted with fun electronic games and converted TVs, a donation of an X-Box 360 with interactive games and a Samsung Galaxy Tablet with educational apps.

Funds will also be used for future technology needs going into the 2014 school year. Volunteers assisted 450 children between 6-18 years of age at the various activity stations during the “Summer Fun Day” to celebrate.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica is dedicated to providing youth a safe and productive place to go, and to inspire and enable all young people to realize their full potential as caring, responsible and productive citizens.

The organization serves more than 4,000 children between the ages of 6-18, living in 109 different zip codes, annually.
