Most of us have an “in case of emergency” contact. That person you can call whenever and know they will come through.
TPG began answering that call for Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County in 2012. Our first project together was a KaBoom! Playground build at our Martin Branch. With the help of hundreds of volunteers from TPG, it only took one day to construct a newer and safer playground that would provide years of fun for thousands of kids in the Polytechnic community.
Their generosity of spirit has only grown since that first playground project. TPG has mentored and tutored children in our academic rooms, provided a fully catered Thanksgiving dinner to families in the Butler housing community, hosted a table at our annual career fair, held back to school and summer supply drives, sponsored numerous events, and collected gift cards for our teens around the holiday season to ensure everyone has an opportunity to smile and celebrate.
When COVID-19 hit our community and began impacting our families at a disproportionate rate, TPG was one of the first partners to raise their hands and ask - how can we help?
The firm has made a significant financial contribution to our COVID-19 Relief fund and last week donated 60 family sized meals to our mobile food program. They have gone above and beyond to answer the call and help us continue our mission and essential services.
Lindsay Antoniello, Deputy Chief Compliance Officer at TPG, is a board member for Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County. To Lindsay, investment in Boys & Girls Clubs is another great example of TPG’s commitment to supporting its communities. “TPG believes in the importance of the Boys & Girls Club’s mission to provide our community’s at risk youth the opportunity to reach their full potential,” she said. “We are proud to be long-time supporters of the Club throughout the years. I am honored to further exemplify TPG’s dedication to the Club in my role as a board member and demonstrate my own passion for making a difference in the lives of the children in our community.”
TPG’s support of the Club plays an important role in our ability to serve youth and respond to the COVID-19 crisis. We thank TPG for its generous partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs and continued commitment to a bright future for all!
