Lighting Up a Youth Center

Boys and girls in Milford, Mass., are enjoying evening activities at the Milford Youth Center thanks to the generosity of the Donahue family and their electrical companies. William Donahue IV, president of Crown Supply Co., and his father, William Donahue III, president of B&J Electric, donated both the exterior lighting and the installation work to provide additional security and safety around the building. Products installed included wall packs, timers and motion sensors on the sides and rear of the building.

“The Youth Center building is over 100 years old and needed a lot of updating,” said Jim Sanchioni, director of the Milford Youth Center. “I called Bill and his dad just to get pricing, and they didn't hesitate for a minute to come down and donate all the work and materials.”

“We were happy to be able to provide the installation of this new lighting to the youth center where both my father and I spent time as kids,” says Bill Donahue. “My father actually grew up eight houses away on the same street. Jim is doing a great job at the center and it is important that it is well lit for the safety and security of all that use the center in the community. We also thank the manufacturers that supported our efforts, particularly RAB Manufacturing & NSI Industries.”
