The Atlanta office of DPR Construction recently renewed its commitment to Atlanta-area youth with its continued support of the Brookhaven Boys & Girls Club – part of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta – by donating $40,000 to the club’s Power Hour program for the second year in a row.

The club’s Power Hour program is a comprehensive homework help and tutoring program that provides members with the daily support, resources and guidance they need to complete their schoolwork and maintain a sense of educational confidence and ability.
“We’ve made a real commitment to these children, not just a monetary donation,” said Steve Bartkowski, DPR business development manager and former Atlanta Falcons quarterback. “In this past year, we have had the opportunity to work with kids from the Boys & Girls Club, and it has been a truly enriching experience for all who were involved. We can’t wait to see how this relationship grows in the coming years.”
