Dear friends, 

Have you ever gone to bed hungry? Were you ever forced to wear clothes that were too small because couldn’t afford new ones? Were you ever embarrassed to go to school because you haven’t showered in three days since your water at home was turned off? I’ve struggled with all three but thanks to the Boys & Girls Club of Worcester, I know I have a place to go when things get bad. What does the Club mean to me? The club means home because it is filled with people who care about me. I can count on them no matter what.
