This year, gifts will go to work to enhance and expand the programs offered for club members and families. Additionally, the support shown on Giving Hearts Day helps children grow academically, socially, and civically each day while being surrounded by caring, adult mentors who build meaningful relationships with them.
Boys & Girls Club of the Perham Area has been in its new space for a year and are excited to serve more youth and increase the impact in the community of Perham. The Perham Unit serves an average of 100 members per day Kindergarten through 7th grade. The club space is designed to meet the needs of each grade level, including a dedicated Teen Center, a full kitchen, gym, and outdoor area.
Gifts given this year will be used to improve the club's outdoor play space by adding shade areas, picnic tables, and additional equipment to enhance outdoor programming.
