Project Report | Jul 28, 2016
Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Country New Facility

By Jeanette A. Koechner | Director of Community Development

Summer Camp at the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County is drawing to a close.  Between the two Boys & Girls Clubs in St. Charles County over 400 children have been enrolled in Summer Camp 2016.  At the St. Charles location, we now have the luxury of being in an air-conditioned Club.  It is now a Club that does not have a leaking roof, a Club that has program classrooms, a Club that has so much more to offer.  As we move forward and open the doors for the After School Program, parents will begin to enroll their children with current memberships. Before Summer Camp ends we celebrate with our "Back to School Bash".  During the Bash, children are given free hair cuts and bookbags equipped with their required school needs. The current programs will continue and new programs will be initiated.

However, we still must satisfy the debt on the new facility in St. Charles.  Eliminating the current debt will free up additional revenue that is now being absorbed by the debt.  We will not lose sight of the fact that our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us the most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring responsible citizens.  The programs offered at the Boys & Girls Clubs are extremely important to the children.  For many of our members, our programs keep them interested in school by helping them be prepared to participate in the classroom. It gives them the desire to graduate, get a good education and become gainfully employed as they reach adulthood.  The Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County is an important home for many. It is a place where they feel safe, enjoy favorable experiences, builds self-esteem and enjoy the caring staff.
