Club Joins #GivingTuesday
The Boys & Girls Club is a participant in #GivingTuesday, an initiative to encourage philanthropy and harness the collective power of generous individuals, communities and organizations.
Falling this year on Nov. 28, #GivingTuesday comes on the heels of Thanksgiving and shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, intended to inspire people to give to the charities and causes they support.
Donations make a difference, says chief executive Pam Estes. “Our impact is not only visible in the young people that show up to the club every day, but in our alumni, who are advancing their education, energizing their communities, and realizing their dreams.”
