"We are extremely grateful for our community's continuous support for the Sequoyah County Boys and Girls Club. The club operates solely on grants and donations, so without this support we wouldn't be able to sustain our county club," Sequoyah County Boys and Girls Club board president Lindsie Dyer stated.
The Sequoyah County Boys and Girls Club is a non-profit after-school and summer educational program. The organization serves children ages 6–18 and provides a safe, trusting, and fun environment for children while parents are working.
The club helps youth navigate life’s pathways by enriching their knowledge, increasing community awareness, and teaching them how to better apply healthy lifestyles.
"In addition to community support, I want to thank the club's board of directors, CEO, club director, and caring club staff, who all go above and beyond for our county youth. It takes a village; however, I am extremely proud of the village we have here in Sequoyah County," Dyer added.
So on Thursday, May 4, take some time to sit back, relax, and tune in to bid on some fantastic items while supporting a great cause.
