Annual Campaign 2018


Dear Friend,

Will you invest in a great future for Emily? Or in another child in our community who needs your help?


Emily’s story

For six years, Emily was our only child. Then Blythe arrived as a newborn in 2016. Four months later, we adopted a niece and a nephew who had been living in foster care for most of their young lives. That’s quadruple the love in our household and 100 percent more chaos. It’s been hard for all of us, but especially for Emily.

At the Club, Emily has found personal connections and a safe place to express some of her anxieties and frustrations about the big transition in her life. Club staff focus on the positives and have helped her embrace her new role as big sister. Emily is thriving.


We cannot thank you enough for your past generosity. Your investment has had a profound impact on Emily, 9, and now her brother, Nathaniel, 8, who also loves the Club. With your continued support, we are hopeful that the Club will also be here for Cassandra, 5, and Blythe, 2.

Your gift is a gift of stability for a child who feels displaced, confused or maybe uncertain about events in their lives. Your gift provides caring professionals who partner with families to reinforce the core values we share as a community, a community that cares about its children.

There are so many children in our community who are desperate for connections with caring adults and for positive experiences. It costs $850 a year to fund one child at the Club.

Will you join us in making a gift to give a child in our community a better chance for a great future?


With grateful hearts,

Daniel and Tuesday Sweet, Club parents


By the way, you can help us reach our $125,000 goal and double your investment. The first $30,000 will be matched thanks to a mentoring grant and a generous Turtle River Couple.
