Campaign for Chicopee’s Kids
Growing up in today’s world isn’t easy for any child, but for many kids in our community, it is tougher than you may think. All young people struggle with making friends and fitting in, but what if you also had to worry about where your next meal was coming from or how safe it was for you to walk in your own neighborhood at night? At the Boys & Girls Club of Chicopee we dream of a world where every child is given the opportunity to succeed in life and experience a brighter future.
The Campaign for Chicopee’s Kids…The 2016 Annual Campaign for the Boys & Girls Club of Chicopee supports activities designed to capture their interests, teach skills and build supportive relationships. These personal relationships are the means to a much greater end. They provide members with the opportunity to communicate rules and expectations; take on meaningful challenges; build self-confidence and self-esteem; and offer hope and opportunity. One person can make a lasting difference in the life of a child.
As you may be aware, we purposely keep dues low so that all children will have the opportunity to join. While it costs the Club nearly $1,650 a year to provide services to one child, we only charge them $30 a year to be a member. You can help keep this opportunity – to develop relationships with caring professionals and to experience programs that build character – by making a financial contribution.
It just takes one person to help make our dreams come true. It just takes you! Your financial commitment will enable us to continue the work that will shape the future of your Club and the 400 members who attend each year.
