    [WISCONSIN RAPIDS] 11/9/2020 – The Boys & Girls Club of the Wisconsin Rapids Area kicked-off their Be a Light for Great Futures Campaign, which will run through the end of the year. Each gift will be matched dollar for dollar by the Bell Family Charitable Foundation up to $25,000.

    “Your gift provides much more than a before and after school programs. Your investment ensures that youth in our community have warm meals, homework help, reliable transportation to and from school, and fieldtrips – all which create memories to last a lifetime,” said Kent Anderson, Boys & Girls Club CEO.

    This year’s donation amounts include an associated holiday decoration, which will help decorate the holiday tree at the Wisconsin Rapids Center. “An investment of $100 will provide a summer membership, along with an ornament – helping the youth and tree shine,” stated Anderson.

    In celebration of Great Futures this holiday season, you can support the campaign by purchasing an ornament or a light. To learn more and donate visit: www.bgcwra.org.
