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.
February 16Boys & Girls Clubs throughout the nation join in mourning the tragic loss of so many innocent children and adults as a result of Wednesday's shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County, Florida.

February 9Earlier this week, twelve "Appleton Hat Ladies" visited the Club of Appleton with sewing machines and supplies in hand, ready to make over 90 personalized fleece hats for our Club members! Members got to pick from a wide variety of fleece design patterns and then joined the ladies as they sewed, watching and learning. This was a HUGE hit for our members and for the "Appleton Hat Ladies" as well -- they said this was one of the most rewarding experiences and cannot wait to come back!
Thank you for volunteering your time and resources to give our Club members a warm gift this cold winter!
