Dallas, TX, October 6, 2017 – Representatives from Century A/C Supply, the Apartment Association of Greater Dallas, the Dallas Police Department and others recently attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the North Lake Highlands Youth Boxing Gym near Dallas, Texas.
The plans have been in the works for a while now and with the support of several entities, the gym is now complete and will provide after school recreation for youths in northeast Dallas and Lake Highlands.
The gym is important to the community because the area has long been a hot spot for crime. Boxing gyms built for youth in similar crime-ridden communities have been shown to provide self-respect, discipline, and a sense of purpose and belonging to the children they serve.
Century A/C Supply was happy to work with York to donate the high-efficiency York HVAC equipment to help keep the kids cool in the gym and Tom Martin with Quality Heating graciously donated his time to install the air conditioning and heating system. “It is important for us to give back to our community, so when the opportunity was presented to Century, we were glad to offer the support” states Kourtney Miller, Sales Manager at Century.
The gym will be open weekday afternoons from 4pm – 8pm. Officers from the Dallas Police Athletic/Activities League (PAL) will provide the training for the youth boxing program and kids aged 7-18 will be invited to participate. The gym will also hold self-defense classes for women and senior citizens.
