Giving back to the community has been an important part of our company philosophy since our business was founded in 1946. We gain the trust of so many people simply because they turn to us when they have a problem. We like to give back by providing the highest level of service, but we also give back to the community in other ways.
Along with sponsoring little league and pee wee football over the years, we’ve just recently begun to support Folds of Honor, which provides scholarships to children of fallen and wounded service men and women. Over the last two years, we’ve worked together with our technicians and vendors to be able to send over $18,000 to Folds of Honor. That’s more than three scholarships for the children of people who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We have many veterans on staff, so it’s been an easy organization for us to get behind.
Over the last two Christmases, we’ve adopted 8 families and 11 children. Because Boulden Brothers got involved, an entire family was able to celebrate Christmas with gifts and a holiday meal. We don’t actually give any money, but instead, we give items from a list of toys and clothes. People on our team go out and do the shopping, and we even provide the wrapping paper and boxes. The entire family has an opportunity to engage and take part in wrapping the gifts themselves. We show up prior to Christmas to make sure that Christmas morning is a very special day for these wonderful families.
Last year, we sponsored a well being dug in Ghana. It has been one of the most moving things we have done because it’s possible to change the lives of generations of people by providing them with fresh water. It’s a one-time gift that may keep giving for a long, long time. Some of the other events we take part in include the Cecil County Fair, Townsend Fair, the Ovarian Cancer Walk, and Breast Cancer Walk. We’ve been either contributors, supporters, or participants in many events like these over the years.
We will be giving back as much or more than last year as we move forward in 2018. That’s because it’s just such an integral part of who we are. As long as Boulden Brothers are around, we’ll be proud to support the community that’s given so much to us every single year.
