BENEFITING: Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana
Many may not know it or want to admit it, but there are children in our community that feel safer at the Clubs than they do anywhere else. In my time working with the Clubs, I have heard many stories about the impact the Clubs have on our youth. One story struck me particularly hard. One Club member was left living on the streets with his family as they bounced from home to home. When the Clubs found out, they opened their doors to his family without hesitation and provided a shelter for them while they got back on their feet. Where this Club member would be now without the help of the Club, I’m not sure, but I can say that he would not have been our Youth of the Year for Porter County and he wouldn’t have the ambition of chasing his dreams of being a police officer. I ask that you help me make a difference in our community and support kids like him.
I, myself, looked to the Club when I was a kid. My brothers and I spent nearly everyday after school at our Club. There are so many things that kids are trying to walk away from and our Clubs give them a place to feel safe, explore their own creativity, engage in team sports as well as many other activities. Help us help all the kids in our communities by sponoring this great organization.
For only $35, you can provide a year of opportunity for a child in our community. For $1,000 you can provide a yar of opportunity for over 25 children in our community. Join us in making this happen and keeping kids off the streets and in our Clubs!
