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.”
