Helping

The Boys and Girls Club of Pawtucket received a $12,500. Grant in January of 2012 and submitted the following report on their use of AFCC funds:

Serving over 4,000 children annually, the Billy Andrade – Brad Faxon Charities for Children’s support has been an integral part of our success for several years now, with this year as no exception: Your grant to provide support for our after-school program including: salaries, food and transportation – was a lifesaver – and we mean that quite literally.

The Billy Andrade – Brad Faxon Charities for Children helped us help the neediest kids:

  • By providing qualified staff who form life changing relationships with our kids – providing them with strong and positive adult role models
  • By feeding kids a hot meal every night – because we know a lot of our less fortunate kids don’t eat as well or as regularly as they should
  • By ensuring that our kids get to and from the Club safely each and every day

Know that your grant made an extraordinary difference. We could tell you how much, but here’s what our kids and parents have to say (and they definitely say it better than we could):

"Thursdays are my favorite day at the Club because they have chicken tacos for dinner. They give me energy to play basketball." Jalen, Age 10

"I don’t know what I would do without the Club. My boys are always here – I can even drop them off on Saturdays. It makes such a difference knowing they are safe when I am working – and I have even seen their grades go up!" Rana, Mom

"The staff at the Club let us be helpers and do special job! It is so much fun!" Nathanel, Age 6

"I really appreciate getting a hot meal every night. It wasn’t long ago I thought a bowl of cold cereal was dinner." Edwin, Age 15

"I always smile when I see George pull up in the big yellow Club bus. Especially on cold days!" Sarah, Age 9

"Thank goodness I know my child will get home safe on the Club bus each night." Frank, Dad

These are just small examples of the significant impact the Club is able to make in the lives of our members – and Billy Andrade – Brad Faxon Charities for Children is a large part of that success:

  • We serve an average of 110 pre-teen meals and 50 teen meals daily
  • More than 150 pre-teens and 90 teens take part in our after-school programs every day

We are certain that or programs wouldn’t be the success that they are today without Billy Andrade – Brad Faxon Charities for Children’s continued support. Kids are safe, supervised, well-fed, and perhaps most importantly – allowed to be kids under what are often very difficult circumstances.

Thank you Brad and Billy!
