Club Gives Hoodies to Boys & Girls Club Members

BOYS & GIRLS CLUB MEMBERS "THANK YOU" CHORUS

 

Tuesday, December 13th at 4 pm in the afternoon while members of the Rotary Club of Sequim and their family members came together to organize a surprise gift many Boys & Girls Club members peeked through the windows into the gym at the Boys & Girls Club. With a lot of happy chatter from the children and Christmas music wafting through the air, the Rotary Club members presented over 275 Boys & Girls Club kids with their own, personal, snuggly hoodie in a lovely Boys & Girls Club blue as a Christmas gift. One hundred kids, not at the club last afternoon will receive their hoodie when they next attend the Boys & Girls Club.

 

Months ago, with Rotary Club of Sequim’s President Ed Ebling’s endorsement, members of The Rotary Club of Sequim chose to present the kids with a valuable gift this Holiday Season in lieu of treating themselves to a Christmas party. An extraordinary 90% of membership agreed. Each member contributed several hundreds of dollars to make this project come to life and were happy to have them screen printed here in the community. Executive Director, Mary Budke said “Now the kids will have their winter coat!”
