Great Futures Start Here!
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley has been a cornerstone of the community since opening our doors in 1998. Serving over 13,000 youth a year, we provide them with the opportunity to:
- feel and be safe,
- know someone cares,
- be challenged by interesting, life-enhancing activities.
June 23Drugs, violence, gangs and learning loss. These are serious dangers facing youth in Wisconsin and across our nation this summer. But your gift to Boys & Girls Clubs can provide an at-risk child with a safe haven and supportive programs to fight back.
Don't let a child fail.
At-risk children have a tougher time in school. So summer learning loss hits them hardest. But Boys & Girls Clubs have engaging summer academic programs to keep them learning. And provide a safe, supportive environment.
You'll give a child in need:
-Academic help to prevent them falling behind
-A healthy meal
-Supervised activities to build character
Help us reach our Annual Fund goal of raising $60,000 by June 29 to provide vital help for kids in crisis. Visit http://tinyurl.com/zngoaw8 to please give a gift today.
