OTTO South Boston’s ‘Tips for Kids’ program raises funds for local children’s organizations

Giving back has always been part of OTTO’s DNA since day one. When OTTO’s newest licensed unit located in the heart of Southie (416 W Broadway) opened, the business model was designed to pay above average wages so that all tips could be donated to local youth-focused charities.

As a result, OTTO Southie was able to write a check for $29,000 to the Condon Community Center in late August. The Condon Community Center is part of a network of community centers in Boston providing a wide range of programs for youth and families, including after school activities, computer classes, and sports and fitness opportunities.

OTTO Southie will be featuring a different organization each quarter. From October 1 through December 31, all tips will be donated to the South Boston Community Health Center’s Youth Ambassadors Program (YAP), a South Boston resource for teens to explore the realms of health, art, and community service.

We owe a ton of thanks to the OTTO Southie staff and the generosity of our customers for making these donations possible. We know that, now more than ever, charities and community organizations need additional support to continue offering the services they provide. We’re grateful that OTTO Southie has been in a position to help, and we hope to continue this tradition into 2021 and beyond.
