AmeriGas teams up with Boys & Girls Club of Craig, donates $5K
AmeriGas in Craig is donating $5,000 in a new effort to support children and youth through the Boys & Girls Club.
“From Here. For Here.” Is a new initiative that encourages local AmeriGas office employees to volunteer at the club.
In a letter issued by the company, Kathy Marshall, Craig resident and AmeriGas employee, stated, “there are so many great people here, and we’re all trying to make ends meet. It’s not always easy. We know what it’s like to need a helping hand, especially when you’ve got kids to take care of and provide for.”
In the next couple of months, Marshall and other local AmeriGas employees will paint a room at the center, and contribute items on the organization’s wish list like art and sports equipment and educational programming supplies.
AmeriGas will also support a scholarship fund to pay for field trips, and extracurricular activity expenses for low-income children and teens.
“The Boys and Girls Club of Craig provides a safe place where educational and fun youth-development programs give each child a sense of belonging, helping them to become the leaders of today and tomorrow,” stated Steve Cless, district manager at AmeriGas’ Craig office in a news release.
Local residents and AmeriGas employees recently came together for a day of fun in the sun at a family barbeque hosted by AmeriGas at the Boys and Girls Club of Craig on Aug. 11.
The barbeque served as a kickoff event for AmeriGas’ commitment to support the organization.
“We’ve been in the area for a long time, and it’s important to us that we contribute to the success of the next generation by supporting programs like this that give children and youth the tools and skills they need to thrive,” Cless stated.
