Boys and Girls Club of Bethalto
This Saturday, June 22nd, the Restore Decor fundraiser will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Bethalto.
The Boys and Girls Club has been in existence for over 150 years, and has a presence in many communities across the country. Its mission is "To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. "
The Boys and Girls Club of Bethalto opened its doors 51 years ago in a small church with a handful of teenage boys. Today they have a former school building and gym overflowing with young people and a waiting list of over 100 that they cannot serve due to space limitations. They serve boys and girls in the surrounding area year round, providing programing, help with their school work, summer camp, and much more.
The Bethalto club is actively seeking funds to find a larger location in order to serve all the young people who desire their services.
Come and shop at Restore Decor Saturday, June 22 at 111 N. Second St. in Edwardsville, to find unique furniture and decor items, with all proceeds going to benefit the Boys and Girls Club!
AND, if you are a high school graduate looking for summer employment, the Boys & Girls Club is still in need of youth development counselors to help with the large number of young people served during the summer. If you are interested in helping out, please contact the Boys and Girls Club of Bethalto at 618.377.6030.
