On Sunday, September 30, Youth Enrichment Services (YES) participated in the 13th Annual East Boston Savings Bank 5k Road Race at Carson Beach in South Boston. YES received a prize through the 2018 Nonprofit Challenge for coming in 4th place in recruitment for the race. Members of Team YES included track & field youth, staff, and supporters.
The money raised in the 5k is used to benefit the East Boston Savings Bank Charitable Foundation. The East Boston Savings Bank Charitable Foundation was established in 1998 to provide funding to support charitable causes and community development activities within the communities of East Boston Savings Bank. Since its inception, the Foundation has distributed over $5.5 million in funding to support many deserving charitable causes and community development activities.
