BENEFITING: Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana
A middle school student living in a household with four brothers can be a bit hectic. That’s why the Club is so important to Taija. It is her “home away from home.” For Taija, the Club is a place where she finds encouragement. Her goal is to become a lawyer – and when she talks to Club staff about this dream, they do nothing but encourage her to reach for the stars. When asked what one thing Taija wants for her Club, she states, “I want to buy a new window for the Club because the Club is a window to opportunity. From this window, you can see a different perspective, a window that opens and never shuts. For me, the Club shows kids that their windows will forever be open!” As Taija describes, Boys & Girls Clubs is that window of hope and opportunity for thousands of children!
