It is often said, “It takes a village to raise a child.”  Likewise it takes a village for the Boys and Girls Club to sustain services that benefit hundreds of “children who need us most,” We need your help.  If you are willing and able to invest in kids, there are a number of ways you can assist.

Please contact the Executive Director for additional information on ways you can invest in Great Futures for Carbondale’s young people.
