Thankful is all we can say! Your kindness has reached 225 youth with the Boys & Girls Club of Morgan County this year with our mentoring, programs, and activities – guiding our kids toward academic success, healthful lifestyles, and developing lifelong good character. We are truly blessed by your kindness and thoughtful giving! Up to 106 youth and teens visit the Club every day. You are giving each of them a safe place when school is out, to grow and build the necessary skills for active citizenship and a plan for success after high school.
Our donors give for our Thanksgiving Dinner that provides for 75 youth with their grownups. A Club Thanksgiving is a traditional Thanksgiving that is stress-free for the kids and families who need us most. Our gathering gives families time to eat, connect, and relax together – a welcomed break from the pressures of the day. After dinner, families enjoy playing bingo for prizes and winning board games to take home and play together. Local youth are connecting with this tradition and will become our community’s future leaders, instilling the values of family-connectedness, active citizenship, giving back, and sharing gratitude. Thank you to TOA USA for donating our Thanksgiving turkey, City Changers for volunteering to serve, and Meijer for their generous support of A Club Thanksgiving!

Teen programming at the Boys & Girls Club is growing big.

On November 23rd with the guidance of Kim Richter, BGC Teen Program Coordinator, 31 BGC Teens travelled to Martinsville in service to donate blankets to WellSpring Family Shelter and the Morgan County Humane Society.
