The Prince William County/Manassas Boys & Girls Clubs Regional Board of Directors came together recently to challenge their community to make a difference.
For the next 125 days every financial donation made to the Boys & Girls Clubs in Dumfries, Dale City and Manassas will be matched by the Clubs Regional Board of Directors.
“Our Clubs impact thousands of youth each year that benefit from our $30 annual Club membership,” said Regional Board President Rhett Pfitzner. “That membership is what keeps our youth of all backgrounds participating in education, career, sports, character, technology and arts programming.”
“We provide an outcome-driven club experience within our priority outcome areas in all of our Clubs,” said Regional Director Keeyana Mahoney. A nationwide initiative, Formula For Impact is the Boys & Girls Clubs’ equation in positively impacting their communities. Young People Who Need Us Most + Outcome Driven Club Experience = Priority Outcomes.
“Double our impact and yours by donating within the next 125 days,” challenged Regional Director Glenn Vickers. “Our kids are creating robots, job shadowing for Fortune 500 companies, giving public speeches at town hall meetings and learning to invest in their neighborhoods. We owe them a strong foundation and this 125 day challenge will do so.”
The collective goal of the campaign is to raise $50,000, of which $25,000 will be donations coming from public support. Contact any of the Clubs at www.bgcprincewilliam.org or visit a Club to donate. Every week the Clubs will publish stories from board members, employees and youth about the impact of the Club. In addition to their $30 annual membership program, the Clubs also provide school age child care, sports leagues, summer camp and facility rental opportunities.
