BENEFITING: Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana
My time with the Clubs as a current Board member has opened my eyes to the unique issues and needs children of our communities have. One young girl, Claudia, said the Club is like a home to her. She lives with her mother and six siblings and the Club is a place she can come and be herself. An avid reader, Claudia enjoys the Club’s homework room where she can read all of her favorite books. Being able to step away from her siblings and read in a quiet environment makes the Club a favorite place to go for Claudia. Where sometimes she gets lost in the bustle of her own family, the Club makes her feel like an individual – where she can just be herself!
Whether it is athletic leagues, leadership clubs, free tutoring or art classes, or a safe place to meet friends, Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County has something to offer for all young people. For kids most in need of a sense of belonging, positive role models and mentors, opportunities to discover talents, and an environment in which they are respected and regarded, the Clubs are more than just a place to go after school…Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County is part of the fabric of hope and opportunity that young people cling to every day.
For just $35 for an annual membership, you can help me in letting other kids feel like an "individual" at our Clubs! My personal goal is to raise $1,000 for our organization. Please join me in helping provide hope and opportunity for the youth in our communities.
