Redmond's Boys and Girls Club Scrambles to Raise One Hundred Thousand Dollars to Keep Its Doors Open


They have closed the club for the next month to see if they can raise about 100-thousand dollars more to sustain them through the year.

 

Board Chair Paul Rodby says they have about 60 thousand dollars, enough to run the club for a couple months, but they need more.

 

"It's not about how much cash we have.  We have enough to possibly run it for a couple months. But we don't have enogh to sustain us until we get some grants written and get them in the pipeline.  I think our board decided we needed a year's worth of revenue or we shouldn't move forward.  It wouldn't be prudent."

 

Rodby says they are relying on the community to step up.

 

"We're trying to keep the doors open which literally impacst about 200 to 250 kids a day and we have 500 members who realistically need after school care.  And it's critically important to provide a safe place for them to go, a positive environment.  And if we can't do it, then we've done our best to make this happen."

 

Rodby didn't want to open the doors in Septmber, only to close them in November.

 

He says the board decided they need to raise one hundred thousand dollars more so they can open the doors again in October.
