CHANGE A CHILD’S LIFE
Academic Success, Healthy Living,
Strong Character & Citizenship
I thank the Club for all the great times that I had growing up and for instilling in me the same values that I pass on to my own children today. The Club was the place that I first learned to swing a bat, make a jump shot and catch a pass. The latter obviously made me who I was in my professional career. I made lifelong friends from my years at the club and am truly thankful to all the coaches and counselors that I met along the way. You learned a lot about the importance of relationships, you learned to trust the kids around you and to play the best for each other. Belonging to the Boys & Girls Club is a huge advantage because you learn more than just sports you learn about life.
The Boys & Girls Club of Garfield is a place that supported me as a child and guided me into adolescence. I have fond memories of playing basketball in the gym, flag football in the winter and ping pong with my friends. The Club even provided me with my first job opportunity as a summer counselor. The community of Garfield and myself will be forever grateful for your positive work with youth.
