The Boys & Girls Club of Rutland County was the recipient of a gift from Citizens Bank. The club received a donation of 40 backpacks full of back-to-school supplies to its young members.
Club members in grades one through 12 are now better prepared for class with donated folders, pens, pencils, notebooks, keychains, and more.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Rutland County have three clubhouses-clubs are located on Merchants Row, in the Forest Park community center, and a new location in Brandon.
"Each day, over 100 young people benefit from the club's after-school programming in Rutland County. A vital component to the success of kids who belong is community support, especially from local businesses like Citizens Bank. These businesses continually show their support for non profits like the Boys & Girls Clubs of Rutland County," said Brooke Nuckles, the club's coordinator.
