Boone County Chamber Impact Award Recipient for the Month of January

Congratulations to the Boys & Girls Club of Boone County for being nominated and selected as the Chamber Impact Award recipient for January! The Chamber Impact Award recognizes a Boone County Chamber member who has made positive contributions to the Boone County community.

The Boys & Girls Club of Zionsville and the Lebanon Boys & Girls Club have recently merged to create the Boys & Girls Club of Boone County in order to grow to meet the overwhelming demand and growth in our county. Coming together increases their capacity and allows the Club to expand physically, financially, and serve EVERY child possible in Boone County.

The Boys & Girls Club of Boone County– Lebanon, Whitestown and Zionsville– serves 425 members daily and currently has 3000 total members. In addition to their daily programming, they offer sports leagues and summer camps. In Lebanon, they feed an average of 85 kids, five days a week. Without the meal provided by the Club, most of the kids would go hungry until school the next day. The mission of the Boys & Girls Club of Boone County is to enable all area youth, especially those that need them most, to develop the skills, fitness, and character they need to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.

Membership fees for the Boys & Girls Club of Boone County are $55 per year in addition to $50 per child per semester in the Whitestown and Zionsville Units for the after school program. The cost per child is $409 creating an average gap of $354. The Boys & Girls Club is dedicated to assisting youth by teaching life skills and developing character to help them reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens. Kids that attend the Club today become the future leaders of our community, the employees at local companies, teachers at area schools, and become caring members of our civic groups. Their goal is to impact the kids in the Boone County community by creating the premier Club, which focuses on making kids successful – mentally, physically and socially. They need your help to make this goal a reality. You can donate to the Boys & Girls Club of Boone County at https://app.etapestry.com/onlineforms/BoysandGirlsClubofZionsvi/YearEnd2018-1.html.
