Project Report | Nov 14, 2012
Boys and Girls Club of St. Charles Co. (New Club)

By Jeanette Koechner | Resource Development Director

Progress on the Boys and Girls Club of St. Charles
Progress on the Boys and Girls Club of St. Charles

The new facility for the Boys and Girls Club of St. Charles County is under construction.  You can see daily progress.  The most recent addition is the stone being affixed to the back side of the building as seen in the attached picture.  This is an exciting time for the organization.  BUT we are not there yet!  We have not reached our goal to complete this project and you help would be greatly appreciated.  WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO MAKE THIS DREAM BECOME A REALITY!

 The new 28,000 square foot facility will replace our old and worn out current facility.  The current Club operates out of a 55 year old building that has a leaking roof in many places.  In some cases it is necessary to move the programs to a different area in the building that might be available and dry.  The new Boys and Girls Club will allow for more programs to be offered and more importantly, be able to serve more children.  Currently the space is so very limited and it is nearly impossible to add additional programs that are being introduced to us daily by the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.  In many cases, the programs we offer our members are not a luxury but a necessity. 

 The Boys and Girls Clubs of St. Charles County have found it necessary to step up the educational programs offered to its members and help the children keep pace in school and instill the desire to remain in school.  During the school year a meal program is offered.  Many children come home from school to an empty house and an empty refrigerator.  Children are not able to concentrate in school and complete their homework when they are hungry.  Our program offers a hot, nutritious meal each evening after homework is completed to those in attendance in the Club.  We are a place where great futures begin and we want to help those who need us the most.  We can do that with your support and generosity!  PLEASE HELP US HELP THEM.
