On Wednesday, November 16th, mothers and children of Suffolk County Jack and Jill donated desserts and drinks to support the annual Boys & Girls Club of Bellport’s Thanksgiving community meal. Suffolk County teens collected items and put together baskets that were raffled off as door prizes to 5 lucky families. Our chapter families helped to serve meals to about 80 people from the community. Suffolk County Mother and BGCB Executive Director, Sybil Johnson shared, “club members gave hugs and smiles because today’s Thanksgiving gathering reminds them we love them.” Our partnership with BGCB demonstrates how together we have “the power to make a difference”.
Boys & Girls Club of Bellport Mission Statement:
To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most in the Bellport Area and increasingly from the South Shore, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
