The Boys & Girls Club of Langlade County has kicked off its Annual Great Futures Campaign June 1st.

The campaign is the most important financial support effort the Boys & Girls Club of Langlade County has each year, raising funds for the Club’s after-school programs and services for youth in grades 1st – 12th, living in Langlade County. The Boys & Girls Club’s mission is: To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. The campaign’s first phase is for Board and Staff to donate on a personal level to the Club. The Boys & Girls Club of Langlade County is currently in Phase Two, seeking contributions primarily from local community members and businesses. The campaign is run by the Boys & Girls Club’s Board of Directors and their goal is to raise $100,000! So, far we have raised $45,000 and have $5,000 in pledges.

Thanks to our communities generous support, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Langlade County will help shape the futures of more than 2600 youth throughout Langlade County in 2016. Please consider investing in the youth of Langlade County by giving to our 2016 Great Futures Annual Campaign. With your help, the Boys and Girls Club will be a positive force in Langlade County for the next 15 years and beyond. (Quote from Angel Zimmerman, ED)

 

Funds raised through the Great Futures Campaign will be used to support the general expenses of the Boys and Girls Club of Langlade County. Supporters can also request to have their investment allocated to a specific area or program as they see fit. “We receive a number of contributions throughout the year that are restricted for specific projects like building upgrades and repairs.  This campaign is so important because the funds help with keeping professional and qualified employees to work with our youth.” (Quote from Angel Zimmerman, ED)

To provide programming for one child costs the Club $750 dollars a year, yet we only charge a $25 fee to be a Club member. No child is ever turned away because of the inability to pay the membership fee.  By concentrating on children who need us most, we provide each child who comes to our Club the tools to make positive choices.  We cannot do it alone.  We need the support of caring people and community leaders. Amazing kids come into our Club every day and share with us their stories of determination, triumph, and perseverance. You can join us again this year to bring hope, to provide a safe place, and to give the gift of a great future to these kids in our community. Investors like you allow our Club to provide a safe haven and supportive environment to the youth of Langlade County.  (Quote from Angel Zimmerman, ED)

 

“Attendance has increased 60% since 2014, and we continue to receive new Club members each day. We are helping save the lives of Langlade County children one day at a time. The increase in number of youths served, increases our cost substantially. I encourage community members to come and take a tour to see firsthand the impact we have on our youth.” If you would like to learn more about the Boys & Girls Club of Langlade County contact one of their board members to setup a tour.
