Connections: 8/18/17

Their success is in your hands this school year


When the bell rings at 3, a child will be in danger. With nowhere safe to go, they’re left vulnerable to bullying, peer pressure and worse. But your gift to our 2017 Back-to-School Drive will make all the difference for an at-risk child or teen. It could even save their life. Please give today.   

Here’s what happens when kids regularly attend Boys & Girls Clubs:

97% Expect to Graduate 

Compared to 83% Graduating From U.S. Public High Schools

72% Expect to Complete a College Degree

54% Said the Club Saved Their Life

As school starts, the number of kids in our programs surges. Your support of Boys & Girls Clubs is more urgent than ever. Help make sure the next child is safe after school and has the programs and support they need to succeed.

Please give your most generous 2017 Back-to-School Drive gift today.

Thank you
