Growing up in today’s world is not easy for anyone, but for many kids in our community it is tougher than you might think. For over 40 years the Boys & Girls Club of Cleveland County has been focused on youth development, working with young people who need the Club most.
This year our annual campaign, It Just Takes One! Has a goal of $55,000. Don’t think of that dollar amount, think of the 55 children that will be helped by the Club. We know that it takes one caring adult to make a lasting difference in the life of a child. Concentrating on youth who need us the most, our Club provides programs in education, health, career exploration, the arts, sports and fitness and recreation. Most importantly, we are specializing in character development. Every day, staff members at the Club provide guidance and help youth develop the attitudes, skills, values, and behaviors that enable them to succeed in life.
We purposely keep our dues low so that all young people will have the opportunity to join. You can help create this opportunity – to develop relationships with caring professionals and to experience programs that build character – by making a financial contribution to our Club in 2015.
$1,000 will sponsor a child for the entire year in both of our programs
$600 in the After School Program with the focus of homework help
$400 to be a camper in the Jack & Ruth Schweppe Summer Day Camp. Support the Club at any level you can.
You can be the one – you can make a difference. The funds raised in this campaign will be used for programs that give kids the opportunities to develop into caring, successful contributors in our community.
Please consider making a generous contribution today.
