LEOMINSTER — Sharing the common goals of promoting positivity and wellness, the Michael Wallace Foundation for Mental Illness was happy to present a check to the local Boys & Girls Club, located at 365 Lindell Ave., on Aug. 1, in the amount of $2,200.
The foundation raises funds through a variety of events held throughout the year, including Party with a Purpose which is held in May, Michael’s Run 5K Run/Walk, which is held in October, along with donations from an art show, and the community.
It is the mission of the Boys & Girls Club to “enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens”, as stated on their website.
“What we saw on our tour was a place designed to encourage and empower young people through a wide array of activities, programs, and services,” said Kim Pehi, of the Michael Wallace Foundation for Mental Illness.
“They promote positivity, and the importance of physical and mental wellness throughout their space. It is a wonderful place for kids to learn, play, and thrive. And it is such a valuable resource to have so close to home. We share common goals, and we are happy to help support their efforts in our community.”
