Nancy Jenkins Team Helps Win a Challenge Grant for the Boys & Girls Club!

by Nancy Jenkins, CRB, CRS

We are very proud to announce that the Boys & Girls Club of Burlington is the recipient of a 2011 Prudential Global Volunteer Day Challenge Grant.

The club will receive a $1,000 grant from The Prudential Foundation, in recognition of its committement to improving the lives of children and families in Burlington. Congratulations to all of the wonderful kids and staff at the club who contribute so much to our community.

The grant comes as the result of a special Dinner & Internet Essentials Night held at the Club, on September 29, 2011, that was organized and led by the Nancy Jenkins Team. Our team had help from an enthusiastic group of volunteers, made up of clients, customers, and vendors.

The Boys & Girls Club of Burlington has served area youth since 1942. Their mission is to inspire and enable community youth to realize their full potential as productive, healthy, responsible and caring citizens. They offer programs for children and teens in grades K-12.

"Entrenched poverty has escalated," says the club, "and we have expanded our services that focus on the basic needs of the children we serve--food, clothing, and adult guidance."

The Nancy Jenkins Team has been a long-standing supporter of the Boys & Girls Club, organizing regular dinners at the club's Kids Cafe and assisting with promoting other club events. Nancy Jenkins serves on its Board of Directors.

Says Nancy, "We really enjoy meeting the kids and working with clients and cusomters during the meals we organize for them a few times each year. Every child is a gift and every child has unique strengths that contribute to our community."

Prudential's Global Volunteer Day is celebrated annually on October 1. It brings together over 30,000 volunteers worldwide participating in more than 800 projects in 11 countries. It is an initiative of The Prudential Foundation, which invests over $25 million annually in grants that support the revitalization of communities and support Prudential employees' community engagement efforts.

Our sincere thanks goes to The Prudential Foundation--and the many people who participated in our Global Volunteer Day event--for their generosity.
