Having spent this weekend reading up on different charity ideas readers of my website sent me, I have decided upon the Boys and Girls Club of Benton County! It’s no surprise that I love organizations that focus upon helping children. However, one of the reasons why I chose the Boys and Girls Club of Benton County is because they are focused on providing a place for children to develop self-esteem and achieve their goals and flourish in a safe, nurturing environment.
When I was younger, after school activities like Debate Club, Drama Club, Choir provided me a wonderful opportunity to come out of my shell. A painfully shy child, these activities after school gave me that confidence and ground tools that I still lean on today in my career with Walmart here in Bentonville Arkansas.
Without a place to go after school when my parents were busy at work, I don’t think I would be where I am at today. So it was an easy decision to choose the Boys and Girls Club of Benton County as a philanthropic project to support. I encourage all my readers to visit their website: http://www.bgcbentoncounty.org/ and make a donation today to give future generations of children the platform they need to live a successful life!
