With signs of construction taking place around them at the clubhouse at 30 Bayley Road, the former St. Joseph’s social hall, Boys and Girls club officials accepted the keys to the building after closing on its purchase.

Timmy J. Currier, president of the Boys and Girls Club of Massena Board of Directors, accepted the keys from the Rev. Mark Reilly, pastor for the Greater Massena Catholic Community, as a number of club members and officials looked on.

Remember our Club Kids on #GivingTuesday

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving.

#GivingTuesday is all about the power of caring and the generosity of people to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges.

Please remember local charities that need your support on #GivingTuesday — like the Boys & Girls Club of Massena. Funds received stay right here to pay the costs of providing services to our 300+ Club kids. And, meaningful donations don’t have to be monetary — your time and talents are welcome too!

 

Club Kids Are Our Kids. All Of Our Kids.

It’s not just my kids, your kids, or “those” kids that reap the rewards of the Boys & Girls Club of Massena. The Club provides a positive place and programs for all of the kids in our community.

It’s about having a place to go after school for help with homework, meeting up with friends who may go to a different school, learning how to give back through service to others. It’s reading and recreation. Computers and music. Activities that stretch imaginations and build skills in science, technology, engineering & math. It’s learning, it’s fun, it’s healthy and it’s safe.

A successful, local businessman has turned down the chance to support the Club with the belief that it only benefits “those kids” and “those kids” already receive support.

As our Club President & Village Mayor Tim Currier recently shared:

“The club meets the demands of kids in all socio-economic levels, as children from every income level, every neighborhood and every ethnicity are welcome and do participate in the program.

“It is absolutely true, though, one of the great advantages of the BGC, and a primary reason communities that have clubs tend to see better results across the board is because it helps to lift those living in poverty up and into the middle class or beyond, giving them a chance at breaking the circle and becoming very productive members of our society.”

Join us in helping all of the kids in our community. Make a donation or volunteer your time, today. All of our kids thank you!
