Donald Brennan, principal of MyHome, Brooklyn and Brennan Realty Services, received the Dodge YMCA’s “Volunteer of the Year” award in March 24. Brennan was honored for his efforts as Chair of the Dodge YMCA’s Strong Kids Campaign 2010, which helped to raise $150,000 for the program.
The YMCA’s Strong Kids Campaign provides financial assistance to hundreds of local youths and families in need, providing them the opportunity to attend YMCA sports programs. Brennan, a Brooklyn Heights resident who helped create and implement a successful local fund raising campaign, “Send a Kid to Camp,” also serves as Chair of 2011’s Strong Kids Campaign, as well as the Dodge YMCA’s Vice Chairman of the Board.
Brennan commented, “A strong community is important for all us – young and old alike–and I am a big believer in giving back. Many of our younger residents are at risk, and the YMCA’s programs help to foster good citizenship in these youths—something that’s vital to our city and its future. I am pleased to support the YMCA as it cultivates community responsibility and growth.”
The Dodge YMCA, located on Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill, serves the Brooklyn communities of Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Red Hook, Gowanus, Boerum Hill, Downtown Brooklyn and Dumbo.
