My Brother’s Keeper is honored with the John S. Brayton Community Service Award

The Fall River Area Chamber of Commerce presented My Brother’s Keeper with the John S. Brayton Jr. Community Service Award at a banquet held at White’s of Westport on June 18th.
The award recognizes outstanding individuals and organizations who go above and beyond in contributing to the South Coast community and demonstrate excellence, creativity and initiative in their work.
Josh Smith, Director of our Dartmouth facility, accepted on behalf of My Brother’s Keeper and said, “We are deeply honored to receive such a prestigious award for our work serving residents of the Greater Fall River area, especially considering that our Dartmouth facility has been open less than 2 years.”
Our work on the South Coast has exceeded all our expectations to date. We completed our 1,000th furniture delivery from the Dartmouth facility in April, nearly 12 months ahead of schedule; we have accepted referrals from 70 South Coast charities; and we have hosted more than 1,000 volunteers, including 650 students from 40 schools.
