BOSTON – The Boston Celtics and TD Bank CommUNITY Crew – including one native of Harrisville – joined ‘A Bed for Every Child’ in Lynn, Mass. this week as they helped build 40 new twin beds for Boston area youth in need.

Celtics players Brad Wanamaker and Guerschon Yabusele were on site to help build the beds, which all feature Celtics and basketball-themed bedding and accessories.

“The community came together today for something bigger than basketball,” said Wanamaker. “What an opportunity to be here and help these volunteers in making an impact throughout the greater Boston area.”

“Our employees are excited to be a part of assembling beds for local children in need,” said John Ratoff, U.S. Regional Head of Field Marketing Strategy, TD Bank. “Supporting the communities where we live and work is a vital part of how we operate our business every day.”

Scott Gilmour of Harrisville was among those on site.

In addition to helping assemble the new beds, Wanamaker and Yabusele interacted with and posed for photos with members of the CommUNITY Crew.
