Best advice you have ever gotten from a Club kid:
“Don’t worry, be happy!”
What makes the Boys & Girls Club special:
“There is nothing more special than being given the opportunity to impact a child’s life daily, and to be part of a ‘Movement’ and a family that embraces everyone.”
Words to live by:
“Kindness is one of the greatest gifts you can bestow upon another. Never get tired of being kind or doing little things for others. Sometimes those little things occupy the biggest part of their hearts.”
