Reviews for Boys & Girls Club Of Greater Nashua, Inc.
I've had the pleasure of volunteering at the B&GC for a little over a year and it has been an amazing experience for me. As a chef and cooking instructor I have been looking for an organization whose goals mesh with my interest in helping improve the nutritional value of the foods kids eat. The BGCN had been working to enhance their meal program and the timing was perfect for me to join in that endeavor.
I was invited to evaluate the program, help set goals, and work with the chef to create healthy, made from scratch recipes that the kids would enjoy. The chef has done an outstanding job at accomplishing the goals and continues to move the food program above and beyond our expectations.
The staff has been so supportive of the chef's efforts and the kids have been happy to join as he meets his goals. I commend both the administration and the board of trustees who offer unending encouragement and support.
The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua provides a positive volunteer opportunity that offers personal growth in addition to a sense of accomplishment.
Two short years ago I went on a site visit to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua as I accepted an invitation to see the renovated facility after my husband & I made a donation. I didn't think too much about it but walked out with a totally new appreciation of what goes on in that building! Patricia Casey opened my eyes to the world of giving in a way I was unaware of understanding until then right there in Nashua...the community right next door! The programs offered, the food served, the opportunities made available to so many young people who may not otherwise have a chance to excel! It was one of the reasons I have chosen to stay connected to the club. They have put together an awesome team to facilitate so much for so many.
