Atlantic City Boys and Girls Club Temporarily Closes [UPDATE]
For the first time in 40 years, the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City almost had to close their doors for the summer. That won't happen.
Due to a lack of funding, the facility was to remain closed until this fall. But it was a team of donors that came together and made sure that that doors would remain open.
According to NBC 40, 'South Jersey Industries, AtlantiCare, Former Senator William Gormley and Lewis Katz and the Katz Jewish Community Center all contributed, with the Katz JCC taking it a step further.' The Katz JCC will be leading summer programs, as well as make sure that all donations are handled properly.
I'm personally thrilled that the facility will remain open for the summer. The Boys and Girls Club had a very important part in my early childhood, and it certainly made my summer! I hope it does the same for all the South Jersey kids walking through it's doors.
