BENEFITING: Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana
Just last year, six year old Lillian came to the South Haven Club and stated, "I can't read." Staff member Ms. Andrea replied simply - "Yes you can!" Every day, Ms. Andrea worked with Lillian encouraging her to keep practicing words and to keep trying to read - and every day Ms. Andrea told Lillian that she believed in her. This May, Lillian proudly read her first book, "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly," from cover to cover. This is what our Clubs are all about! Believing in children, encouraging them to never give up, and helping them to discover their GREAT Future. I love what I do because 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!
