Thanks for helping essential worker families!
When your child says, "it has been the best day of my life" you know that you've found something amazing. That's what happened when Elizabeth brought her kindergartner to the Club for the first time. Here's what she has to say:
"I decided to send my kids here when online school started and I realized there is no way I could work from home and homeschool at the same time. My kindergartner had serious attachment issues and I was afraid that this was going to be like every other 'school' I sent him to where it ended up in catastrophe. The first day I was so nervous, but when I picked him up he said ‘Mom, I love this place, it has been the best day of my life.’ It brought so much relief to my soul. There have been days where he said he wishes he could go from 6am to 6pm! I send my 6th grader and kindergartner here and they both love it. The staff is so caring, everyone is outstanding!!!” - Elizabeth
I can't think of a better gift than giving a child the best day of his life and giving a mom relief to her soul. When you made your gift to the Boys & Girls Club, that's exactly what you gave to Elizabeth and her son. Thanks for caring enough to make a difference to families like theirs. If you'd like to help even more families at the Club, please consider making a gift today or sharing this project with a friend.
