Nexxus Group® is now part of The United Way team in support of charitable initiatives across Northeastern Massachusetts.

On Friday, May 12 two groups of Nexxus volunteers joined Pathways for Children and the United Way to spruce up grounds and facilities at Pathways locations in Beverly and Gloucester. Pathways for Children is a leading provider of early education and child care for the North Shore. It serves children and their families from 13 communities.

“Amazing what your teams accomplished in 3-4 hours! Thank-you!” wrote Bill Weihs, Senior Director of Development for the United Way of Massachusetts, in an e-mail praising the work of Nexxus volunteers.

Nexxus volunteers also attended Until All Kids Thrive: A Unique Dining Experience and Auction at The Myopia Hunt Club in So. Hamilton, MA.  They enjoyed a meal prepared by the North Shore’s finest chefs. The auction raised more than $65,000 in support of local organizations.

In April, Nexxus volunteers created a 10×10 foot board game for the Beverly Children’s Learning Center. The early childhood education and care program services children in Beverly and its surrounding communities. The sports-themed Road to Victory game similar to CandyLand is designed to help Kindergarten through Grade Three children in with vocabulary words.

Beverly Children’s Learning Center classrooms are aligned by Boston’s professional sports teams and the game proved a perfect fit.
