100 Ways to Celebrate Boys & Girls Club Week


It’s National Boys & Girls Club Week with 4,000 doors nationwide swinging open so communities can see for themselves how Great Futures begin at Boys & Girls Clubs. Even though our Club’s doors aren’t open just yet, you can still celebrate the spirit of Boys & Girls Clubs by spending time with an important kid in your life.

Here is just one idea … more will come in the days ahead.

Just being there for a kid or teen is the simplest way to show you care.

Our Blue Door Means Great Futures for Kids

Our Blue Door Means Great Futures for Kids

Nationwide, the Blue Door of the Boys & Girls Club represents the opportunities that all kids can realize when they open the doors to their local Club: Great Futures Start Here.

With our sincere appreciation to Warren LaValley, Store Manager of Triple A Building Center for donating all of the materials and Boys & Girls Club Board Member Tim Lashomb for his craftsmanship in putting it all together, our Blue Door also symbolizes the effort to open the doors of Massena’s Club.

Look for our Blue Door on display at special events and at businesses who have offered their support.

If you’d like to help open the doors by making a donation, volunteering your time or hosting a fundraising event, just let us know.

Trivia Night Results in Fun and Funding

ImageThe response was outstanding and everyone had an absolutely great time at the Trivia Game Night to benefit the Boys & Girls Club on January 18th.  In fact, we’ve heard from most of the participants that they want us to do it again… soon!

Thanks to the support of everyone who played, bought raffle tickets, made donations, purchased shirts & wristbands and showered our singing Board President with tips… you all helped us raise a bunch of money that will go toward opening our doors.

We will definitely do this again and we hope to see you there!
