How Can I Help?

Giving Statement

It is often said, “It takes a village to raise a child.” It’s true for a Boys & Girls Club, too. It takes a village to sustain services that benefit hundreds of “children who need us most”, and we need your help. If you are willing to care for and invest in kids, there are a number of ways you can assist.

We’re always accepting donations of any kind.
