Boys & Girls Club receives donation
The Boys & Girls Club of Lancaster recently received a grant from Highmark Blue Shield.
The $5,000 donation will help fund after-school programs offered by the club in partnership with the School District of Lancaster.
The club provides daily services to more than 3,000 young people each year through programs that emphasize education and career enhancement, character and leadership development, health and life skills, the arts, sports, fitness and recreation.
The programs are offered at two neighborhood-based clubhouses in Lancaster city and one in Columbia. Additionally, the club serves youth through a community-school partnership with the School District of Lancaster.
