Join us for #GivingTuesday!

As you know, we live in a place of great beauty. For some, it's also a place of hardship. In Maine, about 1 in 7 children live in poverty. These children are six times as likely to drop out of school than their peers. Their futures and options can look very bleak.

For these kids...The Club is the alternative to making unhealthy choices after school, the most vulnerable time of day for youth. The Club is their path to a successful future. The Club can provide the last nutritious meal of the day.
 
These kids and teens need you. With your help, Boys & Girls Clubs will continue to change those statistics and keep the Club accessible to those who need us most.

Year-end is fast approaching.
