What’s on your wish list this year? For our kids, it’s a Great Future. You have the opportunity to positively influence and impact the youth of St. Lucie County this holiday season by Giving the Gift of a Great Future to kids like Olivia.
Olivia was home alone daily afterschool because her mother worked two jobs and her father was incarcerated. She had low self-esteem which led to behavioral challenges at school and poor participation in class, so her teacher recommended the Boys & Girls Club. Immediately after attending the Club, Olivia came out of her shell. Over the past few years she has received homework help, improving her academics at school and participates in the Club step dance team, boosting her self-image. Olivia has even been named as the Club youth of the year and now dreams of going to college and becoming a teacher.
For over 20 years Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County has helped to provide Great Futures for thousands of young people who entered our doors, especially those who needed us most. Throughout the year, we are given the gift of amazing kids who come into our Club every day and share with us their stories of determination, triumph, and perseverance. You can join in this season and help us Give the Gift of a Great Future to the kids in our community. Without the Boys & Girls Clubs, children like Olivia will not have the opportunity to receive positive guidance and support.
“The Club has changed my life; I don’t know where I’d be without it!” ~ Olivia
As you can see, the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County helps shape the futures of thousands of our communities’ youth. You can help. This holiday season, please consider giving the Gift of a Great Future.
