In celebration of National Boys & Girls Club Week from March 7-12

March 07, 2016

As we celebrate National Boys & Girls Club Week from March 7-12, we would like to thank the community at large for its continuing support in providing youngsters with access to quality programs and services that help shape their futures.

Each day, we hear heartwarming stories describing how the club has changed the lives of our 3,800 youth members who come for supper each night, homework help, fitness and nutrition programs, college and career planning, and lasting personal relationships.

This week, we pause to acknowledge those who make a difference in helping us fulfill our mission of changing kids' lives:

• Donors, volunteers, board and committee members, and staff who support our work through their selfless commitments of time, talent, and treasure
• Caring government leaders, corporations, foundations, and agencies that partner with us to reach underserved youth
• Local families who entrust us with America's most precious gift: our youth

This powerful combination of support literally helps keep our doors open. Our shared success is evident when considering that 96 percent of the club's high school seniors graduate and pursue higher education.

We invite you to join us in celebrating National Boys & Girls Club Week, a time of hope and opportunity for the entire community. Learn first-hand how "Great Futures Start Here" by calling me at (978) 683-2747, ext. 111 to schedule a tour.

In gratitude,
Markus Fischer, Executive Director
