Children are our future. However, not all have the opportunity to reach their full potential, due to a number of factors. But that doesn’t mean they can’t, and The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tar River Region looks past their situations and sees the people they could become. The BGC works to create a safe, positive, and nurturing environment to help these young people reach their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens. Through afterschool programs and summer youth development programs, the Boys & Girls Club can guide young people towards the path of progress and success. The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tar River Region boasts a 100% graduation rate, with 83% of their club members currently on track to graduate from High School on time, along with providing over 23,000 meals over the course of the school year.
This year The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tar River Region and Rocky Mount Mills teamed up to raise funding during their 3rd annual Derby Day at the Mills on May 7th. Attendees got to enjoy the Kentucky Derby races which saw one of the greatest underdog wins to date, along with a live DJ, food, and entertainment for everyone. The event was a huge success, and all of the funds raised will go towards supporting the over 1,200 young people that they serve throughout the year.
At Rocky Mount Toyota, we want to make sure our young generation has every opportunity to grow into the incredible people we know they can be. That’s why we are proud sponsors of The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tar River Region.
