Review for Boys & Girls Clubs Of Greater Memphis, Memphis, TN, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Memphis (BGCGM) has been an organization that's helped the families in this community for many years by providing a special & safe place for children to learn, grow & gain exposure to the world around them. As a board member for many years, not only do I help raise the funds to carry out the mission, I parcipate and communicate directly with club members and staff to gain perspective on how the club is going. I choose to give of my time and talents to be a part of an organization that truly is involved in children's lives, tries to enhance the character of every child and provide a safe, clean place for them to come to. This organization has always been about putting the best staff with the best programs in the clubs which produces the best children possible who come from disadvantage situatons. And when you put this organization in front of a community that can see the benefits, you can get people and board members like me who truly see how this organization should be supported. We need to keep asking people to give a little time and a lot of money to this effort. The founders of the Boys Club are getting old or have past on but their community spirit and sense of purpose needs to be rekindled in others today so that this organization continues to provide safe places to for children.

Role:  Board Member & I have served as a judge for several events and has served as a club board officer which includes chairman of a local club board.
