Today, our Clubs participated in the annual Dale Larson Family Day of Kindness & Sharing. This day is a continuation of the generosity shared by the Larson Family by continuing to support BGCTC and helping to make our work possible. Inspired by the positive impact we can have in our community through service, Club youth at each of our 10 Club locations participated in a community service project today.
“The Larson Family’s incredible generosity has allowed us to continue to deliver impactful programming through the most trying of times. Youth knew that the Boys & Girls Clubs were there for them when there weren’t a lot of other places to turn. They knew that the resources that mean so much to them were available because of the generosity of our community and they wanted to give back in their own way with The Dale Larson Family Day of Kindness & Sharing” said Terryl Brumm, President/CEO of BGCTC.
