Thank you for helping kids like Emily!
Kids at the Boys & Girls Club feel like it has changed their lives for the better. Your support is what makes that possible. I'd like to tell you about a 5th grader named Emily, who is one of the children whose life you are changing.
Emily has been coming to the Club every day after school and during the summer ever since kindergarten. She says, "The Club helps me succeed because I get to know kids that are different from me and ones that I wouldn't meet anywhere else. The Club also helps me with my homework so I can do well in school. The staff always make sure to help if I don't understand something. And the Club helps me be active and learn good sportsmanship. When I grow up, I'd love to become the director of a Boys & Girls Club because I like helping other kids at the Club."
You're helping Emily see the good in other kids from all backgrounds. You're helping her do better in school. You're helping her stay fit and healthy. You're helping her learn to be part of a team. You're helping her see the value, importance, and good feeling you get from helping others. Those are big gifts that you are giving to this little girl. Thank you.
