Donate to the Boys and Girls Club of America
The Boys and Girls Club of America has been giving young children alternatives from hanging in the street for over 150 years. The organization was founded by Mary Goodwin, Alice Goodwin, and Elizabeth Hammersley in 1860. The three women wanted to give boys who wandered the streets a positive alternative.
Today, The Boys and Girls Club of America has 4, 175 chartered club facilities, and assist the youth of all ethnicities. The organization reaches 4 million children throughout the United States and helps put them on the right path to having a bright future.
Keylon Singleton, a former director of a Boys and Girls Club located in Orangeburg, South Carolina, said, “The Boys and Girls Club saves the youth; therefore it is saving our future.”
The organization’s mission is “To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.”
You can help save our future by saving our youth and donating money to the Boys and Girls Club of America, or by volunteering at your local center.
