The “reason for the season” shines brightly on November 27 during Giving Tuesday. The nationwide movement offers many options to give back and the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Green Bay is asking for you to invest in the future of local kids.
Director of Communications and Development Stephanie Nespoli stopped by Local 5 This Morning to talk about how viewers can “give the gift of Club.”
“It is a national movement that is huge for us right here in Green Bay and allows us to have a voice during the chaos of the holiday season,” Nespoli said. “As a nonprofit, the support of the community is critical to offering youth the life-changing opportunities that are available at the Club.”
This Giving Tuesday, you can help #GivetheGiftOfClub by signing up for their “Membership Drive” with a monthly $10 gift at www.bgcgb.org/donate.
The annual cost of a Club membership is only $10 for the entire year and that is all inclusive! Food, field trips, equipment, etc. However, the annual cost to the Club is $1,000+ per child for the year.
For the cost of just two coffees or one trip out to lunch per month ($10), you can offer 12 kids the chance to have their futures impacted for the better.
The Club offers college tours, homework help, digital arts, organized sports teams, STEM experiments, and more.
Giving Tuesday is your chance to help break the cycle of poverty for a kid or offer a teen the chance to be the first in their family to go to college or be sure that the quiet kid in school has a place to have a voice and be heard.
