Mrs. Breed is loved by the Greenwich community, especially the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich because she has helped countless higher-education bound young people fulfill their dreams of attending and completing college. In addition to her Board commitments, Rebecca regularly volunteers in the Club’s Learning Center, helping children with homework and giving encouragement and guidance.
A native of Greenwich, Breed served as Selectman for six years, with two of them as First Selectman. Afterwards she went to law school and practiced juvenile law in Stamford for many years.
Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich has a Board of 33 members and boasts programs such as S.M.A.R.T Girls, Passport to Manhood, Reading Champions, Homework Help, Swim Lessons, Athletic Training, Robo Tech and more.
It is supporters like Rebecca who invest in these quality programs for Club members (a third of which live well below the poverty level as defined by HUD), without which, the Club would not be able to help children aim to BE GREAT and reach their full potential as productive, caring responsible citizens.
