Message from Boys & Girls Clubs Of SWVA
It’s no secret that things are tough right now. The problems in the world today feel huge. Because they are. But there is hope. Real hope. We see it every day in our children. Today’s young people are tomorrow’s leaders, innovators and problem solvers — the ones who will make good on “enough is enough.” But too many kids don’t have a safe place to go after school, aren’t sure where their next meal will come from, and often don’t have the support they need to prepare for college or a career. That's where Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Virginia steps in. When you give a gift of any size to Boys & Girls Clubs of SWVA, your dollars provide a safe haven, healthy snack, mentors and academic support, and create Great Futures for young people in Franklin County and neighboring communities in Southwest Virginia. We only have one next generation. We’re counting on them. They’re counting on us. Thank you giving them the powerful moments that matter most.
