Club to Step Up for Military Families

Last week two of us attended an ISFAC (Inter-Service Family Assistance Committee) meeting in Plymouth (WI) and made an open-ended commitment to other participating entities that our Club would be there when needed—and we are glad to do so—no one deserves our support more than military family members.

 

Our national organization, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, has rolled out various programs over time to engage military families with some success but this effort is local and passionate.  Among other things we will waive our annual membership fee for children of military families, aggressively distribute information about hours of operation and programs to parents, host recruitment and/or planning meetings upon request and advertise job openings throughout this network.

 

Right now we are in the process of following up with the numerous new contacts we got at the ISFAC meeting—stay tuned for more details!
