Thank you for being a part of our Boys & Girls Clubs family. No matter how big or small a role you play, know that you have made a difference.
To our dedicated staff, I am thankful for the countless hours you spend developing caring and positive relationships with Club members. You provide stability to so many children who may not find security in other areas of their lives. Your are mentors, advocates, sports team coaches, tutors, art instructors, field trip chaperones, party throwers, and a million other things to our Club members. Thank you for filling a role in their lives that is so desperately needed. YOU HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE.
To our caring volunteers, I am thankful for your service day in and day out. We could not fulfill our mission without your efforts. Know that you are the bright spot in a child's day and that a Club member is eagerly waiting for you to arrive. From our Clubs to our administrative office, thrift store, and boardroom, we rely on you every day and we are forever grateful for your time. YOU HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE.
To our generous donors, I am thankful for your continued support. Many of our members' families are never charged a penny for our services. Your financial support means that thousands of youth have a home away from home full of caring and trusted mentors and friends. You provide life-changing programs that turn young children into caring, responsible, and productive citizens that go on to lead successful lives. YOU HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE.
To our Club members both past and present, I am thankful for your tenacity, joy, and infectious spirit. Every day you teach us valuable lessons. Many of you have struggled with adversity in your young lives but have shown great courage in overcoming your obstacles. You act as role models among your peers in the community and lead the way through service, leadership, and scholarship. Your hope and positivity for your own futures is inspiring and I believe you will achieve your goals, because you have the support of so many people that I have already thanked in this letter. YOU HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE.
I wish you all a safe and happy holiday and hope you are fortunate enough to spend it with those you love.
With many thanks,
President & CEO
