THANK YOU you for visiting my contribution page!! I have been a board member for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Syracuse (BGCS) since 2006. I am passionate about BGCS because I believe every child deserves a bright future. Our mission is to inspire and enable young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens. We serve 1,200 youth annually at four clubs in the city's most distressed neighborhoods (98% of our members live at or below poverty level) where there are many negative influences. The Clubs provide children with a safe, positive and fun environment to learn and develop life skills vital to putting them on a path to success. Every one of us can make a real difference in the lives of these children. One Club can offer hope to a neighborhood. And one gift can open the door to a brighter future for a child. That's why I'm asking you to join me in supporting the 2015 "It Just Takes One" Campaign. Your gift will be far-reaching and help us continue to offer high impact programs, hope and opportunity to our kids. (Please pledge by 12/31/15)
Thank you, and best wishes for a Happy Holiday Season!!
PS. in case you are wondering. The 7 yr old boy in the picture with me is one of our club kids. I had the privilege of being on his team in a recent obstacle course challenge that we participated in. (and, for those of you that know me best, WE WON)
