We're raising money for the
Boys and Girls Club of Paris, Texas
fundraiser led by
Operation Empower is a youth-led volunteer group at the Boys and Girls Club of Paris developing leadership skills. Through hands-on experiences, we are learning real life skills such as gardening, simple woodworking, cooking, etc. Working with volunteers we are using these learned skills to improve our club.
What I'm Raising Money For
Using these skills, we problem-solve true problems in our Boys and Girls Club and community. Our Boys and Girls Club did not have any outdoor play facilities when we started. We recently finished making 2 tetherball sets for the club but want to do more. We wish to build a gaga ball court and at least 2 picnic tables.
Why You Should Give
Our kids need an outdoor play area for exercise. Gaga ball is a game any skill level/age can play. This would give our kids something to play with and get active. Our county’s obesity rate of 31% is much higher than the state average. 100% of our Paris children qualify for the free lunch program and are in a Title 1 school.
