Dear Mr. Hunter,
My name is Joreeca. I am 17 years old and have been at the Club for three years now. I am writing today to let you know what the Boys & Girls Club means to me.
The Club is truly my second home; a safe place where leaders surround me and inspire me to achieve and make a difference. They’ve given me guidance to learn right from wrong, like being a baby and becoming a young lady. They’ve given me the ability to realize my achievements and the tools to change for the better.
The one word that I would use to best describe the club is “yes.” “Yes” is what the Club means to me because it has changed my life. My definition of yes is giving me the chance to do everything I can and teaching me how to do everything I can’t. The staff encourages me to reach my goals no matter what comes my way. At the Boys and Girls Club the answer is never, “no.”
Without the Club, I couldn’t describe what my life or my choices would be like today. I have my family and school, but the Club is a positive influence in my life. The Boys & Girls Club brings me joy and opportunity.
Today I am a leader. I’m responsible, and I’ve made up in my mind that I will never fail because of the Boys and Girls Club. The mission of the Club has been accomplished in me, and now I can accomplish my mission each and every day.
I’m no longer the girl with a bad attitude. I’ve opened up to people and make better grades. I am no longer a misfit piece. I am part of a whole. Neither the club nor I would be complete without each other.
I needed the tools the Club provided me and I will keep them forever in my toolbox. With these tools, I am building and constructing the perfect me. Thank you so much for supporting this great place which is helping me to become my best.
Joreeca’s letter speaks of the positive impact that Boys & Girls Club has on young adults, and the way that donations can create inspiring opportunities for even more children. Donations and community involvement make the Boys & Girls Club the successful organization that it is, and giving to the cause can create new opportunities for the future of Henderson County. Costing only $5 a year per child, supporting the Club is an affordable prospect for many community members and businesses. Regardless of the amount, every donation can help shape the life of a child like Joreeca.
