I have been a Board member for the past 4 years, and remain impressed with the difference the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Pee Dee continues to make with at-risk youth. The staff is a professional as you will find with any organization, non-profit or for-profit. They have a true desire to continue to be more effective for those current attenting, and to find ways to reach more children. Every decision is made with children we serve in mind.

The Boys and Girls Club of the Pee Dee does a fantastic good of providing a safe, clean, caring place for children in our area to attend and become involved rather than being left at home or "on the streets". Studies confirm that participants in our Boys and Girls Clubs do better in school and have a higher self esteem than their peer groups. As as donor and boardmember, I apprciate how effecive our area clubs are with the limited resources provided.

Homework help helps kids to be on honor roll. Safe place for kids and caring adults. A place to belong.
