BENEFITING: Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana
Moving from Macedonia to the United States was not an easy transition for Sanja. An extremely intelligent young lady, the language barrier she faced caused her to be held back in school crushing her confidence and causing her to be shy. Then she was introduced to the Boys & Girls Club! At the Club she was able to be herself. She started talking to staff members feeling more comfortable with the English language, and eventually began making friends at the Club – good friends! Today, Sanja excels academically! She is confident and not only works on her homework at the Club, but fosters her love of art digital arts. The Club has opened a new world for Sanja. Her accomplishments and achievements earned her the title of 2015 Youth of the Year for Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County. The Club provides hope and opportunity to thousands of youth – just like Sanja. As a Board member, I see the positive impact our Clubs have daily on youth. You can too - a small gift of only $35 will provide one year of opportunity for a child. Join me in being the one to make a difference!
