In this season of giving, please consider at donation to the Boys and Girls Club. The Club has grown incredibly over the past four years, but for every additional member, we need to raise an extra $8/day in unrestricted funding. To ensure that we can continue to keep membership fees to a minimum, we currently have to raise $1000 every day that the Club is open.
