“The impact the Boys & Girls Club has on children and families is significant,“
With 45 clubs across the state, The Boys & Girls Club served more than 32,000 young people in 2011, directly impacting thousands of families. The Boys & Girls Club, a national non-profit organization, provides young people with a positive, safe place to go after school. While there, members are able to receive help with homework, participate in educational and sports programs, as well as, learn critical life development skills. Since the club’s establishment in North Carolina in 1896, The Boys & Girls Club has touched many lives not only across the state, but the nation as well.
“The holidays are a difficult time for many families, especially many members’ families,” notes Alan Taylor, Director of Development & Marketing at the Wake County Boys & Girls Club. “We greatly appreciate the generosity and efforts of Doctors Vision Center and their commitment to helping us make a difference for Boys & Girls Club members and families. “
