Annual Campaign 2019


Dear Friend,

When you give to the Boys & Girls Club of the Bemidji Area, you provide the safety net that many kids are lacking.

You are helping kids like the middles school boy who sometimes storms into our program office ready to burst. His parents have struggled with drug addiction. He sometimes steals to feed his younger siblings. It’s no wonder he has trouble reigning in his anger.

At the Club, this boy has found a safety net. He has made amazing strides. And despite his struggles with anger, Club staff can see in him an excellent role model and leader in the making.

Your gift paves the way for this boy to beat the odds.

Our Club population is changing. We’re seeing more kids every day who face daunting challenges. Poverty. Divorce. Substance abuse. These are the kids who most depend on you for a bright future.

More than 50 percent of our Club families live at or below the poverty line. And 40 percent come from single-parent households whose resources and time are stretched thin. Your gift today will make sure that every child who needs a safety net will find one at the Club.

It’s crunch time at the Boys & Girls Club. As we head into the summer, we need your help so we can continue to serve those Club kids who need us most. We have until June 30th to raise $125,000. Will you help?

The Club serves as many as 200 children a day. At least one is counting on you.

With gratitude,

Cindy Serratore

Board Chair
