A Look Back At #GivingTuesday

By Adriana Thomas

In 1959, our organization incorporated, and since then, we’ve

provided a positive place for local youth to realize their potential. For 60

years, when the school was out, the club was in. On our 60th year,

we want to recognize the good work that staff and the community can accomplish through unrelenting dedication on #GivingTuesday.


#GivingTuesday is a relatively new themed day that sits between cyber Monday and Thank You Wednesday. It is a day when people give back to the community by giving to a cause of their choice. This year, we’re asking 60 for 60 years of service to our local youth.

There are many ways to give. Whether it’s $60 or 60 volunteer hours,

we’re asking community members to get involved with our youth to ensure another

60 years of success.


On #GivingTuesday at 7am and again at 9am, Magic 102.1 and

WGAU 1340AM aired a special interview with Boys & Girls Club Director of

Resource Development, Sterling Gardner, and Marketing/Special Events

Coordinator, Adriana Thomas. Listen to the interview above.
