Thanks for helping kids like Irene!
This year, the Club will give more than $800,000 in scholarships to kids in need to make sure that no child is ever turned away for inability to pay. Your contribution to the Club's scholarship fund is an important part of making that happen!
One of our young Club members named Irene recently wrote a letter to the Club staff about what it means to her to be part of the Boys & Girls Club. I'd like to share it with you because you are a big part of what makes the Club such a positive place for kids like Irene.
She says, "The Boys & Girls Club is a place where you find what you might not find anywhere else, like happiness, fairness, and even being creative. From the very first day I came, I could feel JOY in my heart. The Boys & Girls Club makes me feel safe, but gives me the freedom and space that I need. Every Friday, they have an assembly where they announce kids who are caught doing something good that week. It makes you feel really happy about yourself."
Thanks for helping Irene and kids like her feel joyful, safe, and happy about themselves. I honestly can't think of a better way to invest your money than in giving a child in need those gifts and we are so grateful to you for choosing the Boys & Girls Club and making a difference to the kids in the Club's scholarship program.
If you'd like to help another child like Irene, please consider making another gift or sharing this project with your friends on social media. The more that's invested in the scholarship program, the more joyful, happy, and safe kids there will be at the Boys & Girls Club!
