Community Services | Boys & Girls Club Alliance
Social responsibility is an integral party of McConnell & Jones’ value system. We are proud to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs in Houston, Dallas, and Austin, Texas as well as Washington D.C. to support youth in the local communities in which we live and work.
Every day, there are 11 million kids that leave school and don’t have anywhere to go. This time spent out-of-school, without the guidance of caring adults and access to engaging learning opportunities can leave kids with few positive influences.
The partnership between MJ and Boys & Girls Club establishes long-term opportunities for MJ associates to volunteer their time and includes:
- Back-To-School Supply Drives
- Mentoring Days
- College Planning & Help
- Holiday Giving
- Homework Help / Tutoring
- Sports & Game Coaching
We’re proud to support our employees’ passion and commitment to volunteering and giving. We know that community needs are great, and one of the ways we can play a role is by connecting our employees to meaningful opportunities to help vulnerable populations in the areas where we work.
MJ is committed to contributing to the community and hope that in doing so we help set an example for others – individuals and businesses alike – to follow.
