Thanks for "pulling for" the kids!
This year, the Club will give nearly $800,000 in scholarships to families in need so that every family can afford to have access to quality care they can count on at the Boys & Girls Club. Contributors like you are what makes it possible for the Club to give kids from all backgrounds award-winning programs to help them reach their full potential. Your support ensures that every family pays only what they can afford, even if that’s nothing at all.
A mom named Ashley says, “I am barely making enough money to pay my bills and I am getting back on my feet from being homeless. Without the Club’s scholarship program, I wouldn’t earn enough at my job to pay for childcare. This scholarship means the world to me – giving me peace of mind, knowing my son won’t be alone after school.”
Rebuilding after homelessness is not easy. But thanks to your support, Ashley’s child is in the Club’s safe environment instead of out on the streets. The reliable, affordable care her child gets thanks to the Club’s scholarship program means Ashley can go to work every day and provide for her family. That’s because of you. Instead of being a handout, your contribution gives her the helping hand up that she needs to make a better life for her kids. Thank you!
If you'd like to help even more families like Ashley's, you can make a gift today or share this project with your friends so they can get involved, too.
