Spotlight: Furniture Donations Transform Boys & Girls Club Space

Shot on location at St. Alban’s Boys & Girls Club in downtown Toronto, Canada we featured Shawn Burgess and his thoughts on the impact of these donations on behalf of our corporate client. Boys & Girls Club was able to transform its computer lab, offices, and shared spaces through our work together.

“Working with Green Standards again has allowed us to have a great space for children and youth to come in and to manage. We can now focus some of that energy and time and money towards more meaningful tangible things for our participants within our programs. The donation has revitalized our space and transformed it.”
