Boys Hope Girls Hope Of St. Louis Receives A $10,000 Grant From State Farm
By: Boys Hope Girls Hope St. Louis
"Boys Hope Girls Hope of St. Louis is grateful for the generous support from State Farm," says BHGHSTL Development Director Jan Wacker.
BHGH is an international organization that works with young people in need from their critical adolescent years through college and into the launch of their careers. BHGHSTL scholars become a part of a family-like network that sticks with them through life's ups and downs for the long term. Along the way, they learn the significance of using their gifts and abilities to serve others and make a difference in their families, workplaces, and communities.
Studies have shown that children have the power to overcome adversity, realize their potential, and help transform our world. BHGHSTL believes children create these successes when we remove obstacles, support and believe in them, and provide environments and opportunities that build on their strengths.
State Farm believes education is critical for healthy, vibrant communities. Access to education helps everyone reach their greatest potential. For 100 years, State Farm has made it its mission to restore lives, help rebuild neighborhoods, invest in communities, and support education and safety initiatives where we live and work. It's what being a good neighbor is all about.
In partnership with State Farm, BHGHSTL works to help scholars achieve educational milestones and ultimately make their dreams a reality. Financial support from State Farm keeps the BHGHSTL vehicles fueled and ready to transport scholars to and from school, work, and activities throughout the year.
