Why we are walking:
As staff at the Boys & Girls Club, our member's well-being is our top priority. If you have visited the Club recently, you likely noticed that our facility is not as young as it once was, and is showing the wear of the growth in our programs. Our Club member's bathrooms are in dire need of some upgrades to improve efficiency and capacity for our growing population. To show our connection with the youth we serve, we are going to be walking through the neighborhoods where most of our members reside, the Acre and Lower Highlands, to raise funds to start the much needed bathroom renovations. Our goal is to raise $7,500 towards this project. While this is not the flashiest of program improvements we could make, we believe these upgrades will greatly enhance the experience and comfort for all our members.
The mission of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell is:
"To inspire and enable young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens through dedicated staff and innovative programs, provided in a safe environment."
