Success Stories

Dear Boys and Girls Club/ Thomas P. Raley Unit,

I would like to take this time to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your summer program at the Boys and Girls club in Sacramento. My two children thoroughly enjoyed the activities. As the school year for my kids came to an end in June, I started to worry about what my two kids would do this summer, while I was at work. As a single mom, I want to provide for them the best summer experience possible. My work schedule and limited income prevents me from doing this with them during the week. I was greeted by a warm, friendly receptionist. She showed me all the wonderful activ  ity/studio rooms that are offered such as a Tech room, a Recording studio, Designer studio, Dance studio, Library. To top it off lunch and snack are provided too, along with field trips. I couldn't believe my good luck and had to rush home to tell the kids. For $65 per kid, the kids could attend for the whole summer. Incredible deal! The facility is always clean; the Club staff are always friendly and encouraging to the kids. My daughter learned how to apply makeup, the correct way. My son learned to dance and make new friends. They even learned about nutrition. My daughter pointed out sugars in a box of cereal while grocery shopping with me one day because the Boys and Girls club showed her how to read and understand food labels. Another day, Toyota sponsored and exciting field trip to a 3D movie at the Imax theatre complete with popcorn and drinks. Another day they went to WF Music Circus, and enjoyed a behind the scenes tour. This was especially exciting to my daughter, since she dreams of being a movie star. We are sad that the summer has to come to an end, but we are excited for next summer at the
Boys and Girls club.
Thank you for all the fun!!
