Boys & Girls Club Receives Anonymous $50K Donation

Funds will help continue meal programs for youth

September 23, 2020 – The Boys and Girls Club of the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa have received a $50K donation from an anonymous source with the intent of continuing meal programs for youth members.

The Boys & Girls Club of America Native Services informed Division Administrator Rebecca Benton and Club Director Paige Moilanen of the donation that will greatly help youth in the community.

“We are very excited to receive this donation as it will allow the Club to provide meals to Club youth, and it will allow the Club to grow and continue to help the youth that come through our doors,” said Moilanen. “It’s always great to have donors like this to help during these tough times, and we would like to thank the donor for this generous gift.”

Red Cliff Boys & Girls Club staff have been assisting the Food Distribution program with meal preparation and distribution for youth in the community since March. Club staff have recently started preparing and distributing meals for the Red Cliff Elderly program while also fulfilling Club duties of virtual programming and planning for the Club’s relaunch.

“We really miss the kids and the Club, and we can’t wait to get back in and open the doors,” said Moilanen. “We want the Club kids to know the following: You are missed. You are important. You are loved. You R.O.C.K. You are Remarkable. Optimistic. Consistent. Kind.”

Red Cliff is thankful for this opportunity to help continue to serve the youth in the community.
