Boys & Girls Club to host Open House

The Boys & Girls Club of Waynesboro, Staunton, and Augusta County will host an Open House for members of the Greater Augusta Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, June 2 from 4-6 p.m.

The event, to be held at the Waynesboro Club at 302 E. Main St., will give companies an opportunity to tour the facility and learn more about how the Boys & Girls Club is helping to prepare youth to realize their full potential.

In addition to the tour, the children will be performing a brief play for the business community at 5 p.m., followed by comments from the executive director and board members of the Club. Door prizes and snacks, provided by Chick-fil-A, round out the agenda.

There is no cost to attend, so please make plans to attend and show your support of the Boys & Girls Club.

The Boys and Girls Club of Waynesboro, Staunton, and Augusta County serves more than 600 youth from its facilities in Staunton and Waynesboro. The mission of the Club is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

The Club receives no direct federal or state funding support and relies primarily on the generosity of the community for its operating funds. Individual donations of $500 or more, or business donations of $1,000 or more are eligilble for a 40 percent state tax credit through the Neighborhood Assistance Program.
