Senior Organizes School Supply Drive in Support of Boys and Girls Club

Join Matthew Smith ’21 in a new service opportunity this week benefitting the Boys and Girls Club of America.

"We are hosting a School Supply Drive benefiting the Boys and Girls Club of America. The Boys and Girls Club supports marginalized youth and teens whose parents struggle to provide them with basic necessities needed to succeed in the classroom. We are all facing changes in learning this year, and no matter where you are it is impossible to learn without adequate supplies. With your donation of school supplies, these kids will have a fighting chance to succeed in their studies online and at their Club houses. 
These kids are just like you and they are depending on your donations. Let’s get after it, Lions. This is our way to give back to those who aren’t able to learn in person like we are."
