  • (1888PressRelease) May 15, 2012 - Lake Dallas, Texas: The Boys & Girls Clubs of North Central Texas announces that the grant received through Kimberly-Clark funding has resulted in positive things for the community. As a result of the money provided by this Family PLUS (Parents, Leading, Uniting, Serving) grant, the Club has been able to host numerous family oriented events with the help of the Genuine Gems of Denton County.

    Funding provided by this grant has enabled the Club to extend Club memberships to single mothers, conduct family educational seminars at the Club, and to host a number of family fun events designed to get parents more involved with their kids in a more recreational environment. Members and their families get together to compete in knowledge games, air hockey, board games and much more. The purpose of this partnership between Kimberly-Clark and the Boys & Girls Club organization is designed to build collaborations with parents and caregivers as partners in the positive development of children. By working with parents and caregivers in the safe environment of a Club, staff and volunteers from the Genuine Gems can help families spend more valuable time together, and promote an integrated network of support for both families and Club members

    As a result of this grant, families have saved more than $10,000 by having their children be a part of the Boys & Girls Club. Single mothers who have not yet taken advantage of this opportunity to secure a Club membership for any of their children age 6 through 17 should hurry while grant dollars are still available. Enrollment for summer camp and fall after school activities are in progress.
