The Club Blog: Words From Our Executive Director, Rick Whitten
Earlier this year, we opened our expanded kitchens and cafeterias at our four freestanding Clubs. The renovations of our food facilities allowed us to double the number of Club kids and families we serve hot meals and snacks. New roofs, heating and air-conditioning equipment, and more program space are just the beginning of our improving the Clubs through a $6.9M capital campaign. After completing our first capital campaign in 20 years, we are now looking forward to our next phase, building a new Club.
Just a few short weeks ago, we began construction on our new Finish Line Boys & Girls Club at 38th Street and Post Road. When completed in early 2016, this new state-of-the-art Club will serve over 1,200 youth on the Far Eastside (find out more about the Club and meet a family who plans to use it). The new Club will include a games room, gym, computer learning center, a teen room, a dedicated space for art classes, kitchen and cafeteria facilities, and more.
And with the release of our brand new website, we now are able to better highlight and tell the amazing stories of both our Club youth and people like you who support them. A thank you to Allegient for their help in creating the new website; we appreciate you.
Your continued support of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Indianapolis means so much to us. We have been here for for 122 years, and with your support, we will be here decades in the future, bringing the youth we serve hope and opportunity.
