BENEFITING: Boys and Girls Clubs of Whatcom County
For most of us "Boys and Girls Club" conjures up images of kids playing sports, and perhaps some kids hanging around playing games in a clubhouse after school. I used to think that. However, I've been part of an advisory committee for the club for nearly two years and it has been eye opening! The clubs in Whatcom County are able to offer our youth so much more than athletics. They have access to homework help, amazing technology, educational trips, volunteer opportunities, healthy meals and snacks, valuable guidance and mentorship from trained and capable staff, and much more. Most of the kids to whom these opportunities are offered would otherwise go without. Without the Club many of these kids would be going home to an empty apartment or looking to busy their idle hands in mischievous ways. In other words, without the Club, our county could be a sad and lonely wasteland filled with roving packs of miscreants. I know this is scary, but you can help. The amazing, life changing experiences the Boys and Girls Club offers our kids would not be possible without the donations of generous, community minded citizens like you. Please consider investing in the future of our kids and community by donating to the Boys and Girls Club. As incentive, if we reach the $5000 goal I will let the kids at the club shave my head (in uniform) and post the video on Facebook! Click and donate, you will feel so much better. Thank you.
