The Boys and Girls Club of Hopkinsville hosted its annual Great Futures luncheon Wednesday as they celebrated the success of students and look forward to adding onto the building once again.
The Club is currently the middle of a capital campaign to raise funds to construct a kitchen and a cafeteria area, to be built on the end of the building closest to Walnut Street. Executive Director Terrance Davis says such a facility would greatly benefit the club, as they served over 1,300 students in 2017 and provided food to all of them.
He says that for many of the children, the food they receive there is likely the last one they’ll get that day. The goal for the project is $500,000 and while the club has already raised a large portion of that, they still need help reaching the price.
Isiah Brown spoke to the crowd, saying the club provided him with valuable instruction that has prepared him for the future and helped him succeed.
Tom Steiner was presented with a certificate for volunteering over 200 hours at the club and staff members, board members, elected officials and donors were all recognized at the luncheon. Those interested in donating or volunteering can call the Boys and Girls Club at 270-887-4020.
