Blue Rock Donates Backpacks to Bridesburg Boys & Girls Club

Blue Rock President Steve Kettelberger gets a fist pump and Thank You cards while handing out backpacks at the Bridesburg Boys & Girls Club in Philadelphia.

Blue Rock Construction recently introduced itself to the great neighbors next to its 5000 Richmond Street project, and the experience at the Bridesburg Boys & Girls Club could not have been any better.

The club sits right next to the two-warehouse project Blue Rock is constructing at 5000 Richmond Street.

Staff made sure names were printed on the children’s backpacks. 

Executive Program Officer Jerry Houck and Director Jamie Shipton gave Blue Rock President Steve Kettelberger an impressive tour of the facility that currently serves 250 to 300 children. The club provides daily meals, afterschool programs, night activities, and so much more.

To help their mission of “helping young people reach their potential,” Blue Rock delivered 200 backpacks to the kids and presented Houck with a donation check.

The Bridesburg Boys & GIrls Club visit included (from left to right):  Cam Barr, Mark Polizzi, club director Jamie Shipton, Steve Kettelberger, executive program officer Jerry Houck, Tim MacFarland, Christine Anderson, Jason Quenzel, and John Rowe.

In return, Blue Rock received countless smiles, fist pumps, and plenty of thank you cards from the kids.

At 5000 Richmond Street, Blue Rock is delivering two new warehouses totaling 759,055 square feet for DH Property Holdings. Work got underway on April 1 and is expected to be completed in February 2025.
