Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada joins global fundraising movement

Staff Report

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global fundraising campaign on Tuesday.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada is participating in the 6th annual #GivingTuesday, a global day of online giving, on Tuesday.

The clubs are just many of the Carson Valley organizations participating in #GivingTuesday.

Katie Leao, chief professional officer for The Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada, said the movement provides a platform to share what the club does for Carson City families by offering homework support and tutoring, art, health and fitness programming and a safe, fun environment in which children ages six to 18 can grow and thrive.

"Investing in the Boys & Girls Clubs is an investment in our community and our future," Leao said. "Every $1 you invest in positive change for kids represents a $10 return in services to our kids and families."
