In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them. Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence. Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow -- all while having fun. It is truly “The Positive Place for Kids.”
For this reason, Amscot made a commitment for the construction of a new Boys and Girls Club in Brandon, FL, which will provide after-school care and summer activities for more than 500 children in the area. By providing the means for the Boys and Girls Club to continue its mission, Amscot allows children from all backgrounds to reap the rewards of this worthy organization.
