Gap volunteers -6group

Earlier this month, the Gap clothing retail store came out and donated 100 backpacks to our Martin V. Smith Clubhouse youth.

Volunteers helped in the Games Room with Ping Pong, Connect 4 and Mancala tournaments; in the Art Room, they helped with the Club’s pencil snake, spider hat and paper wind crafts; in the Learning Center students got their faces painted; and in the Gym volunteers helped with a timed obstacle course challenge. At the end of the day, Club members received brand-new backpacks.

“The kids were excited to receive new backpacks, which went to Club youth with the greatest need,” said Erin Antrim, chief executive officer.
