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.

On September 29, The Nancy Jenkins Team and our clients will host a BBQ dinner for kids at the Boys & Girls Club of Burlington, prepared by Grill Master Eric Gray, of Sweet Breathe BBQ. Our team of 15-20 volunteers will plan, cook, and serve a nutritious 3-course meal for nearly 100 kids.

But that's not all!

In conjunction with the BBQ, ComCast will host an informational event for parents about its Internet Essentials Program. Through the program, qualifying families can purchase fast, reliable internet home service for just $9.95 per month. As ComCast explains, “If your child receives free school lunches through the National School Lunch Program, you may qualify.”

To top off the night, The Nancy Jenkins Team will raffle off twelve "gently used" Dell computers, loaded with basic software and ready to go.

In volunteering during this week, the Nancy Jenkins Team and our group of client and vendor volunteers join forces with thousands of Prudential associates and volunteers around the world participating in Prudential’s 2011 Global Volunteer Day. Held every year near the first weekend of October, this initiative encourages Prudential associates to get more involved in their communities.

Last year, over 25,000 associates, their families, and friends made a difference in 7 countries, 41 states, and over 800 projects. With your help, we can make this year’s event an even greater success!

Shifts are available between 2:30 and 6:00pm, with food prep, serving, and clean-up.

Based on our participation, The Prudential Foundation may also provide a generous $1,000 grant to our nonprofit partner organization, the Boys & Girls Club of Burlington.

Join us! Join in the fun! Meet the fabulous kids of the Boys & Girls Club.
