On February 14th, the Boys & Girls Club of the Perham Area and Empowering Kids Perham are teaming up to raise programming funds and increase awareness through the annual Giving Hearts Day fundraiser.

On Giving Hearts Day, we will rally the communities of Perham, Dent, Richville, Vergas, and Ottertail to Paint the Town Red by encouraging you, our business partners and community members, to spread the word about our organizations and Giving Hearts Day.

Boys & Girls Club of the Perham Area

This fundraiser will be a kick-off for the Boys & Girls Club Great Futures campaign which is the main source of funding support for all Club operations. Funds raised during our annual campaign help our Club provide quality before and after school programs and summer activities for more than 300 youth throughout the year.

The Club’s Giving Hearts Day 2019 campaign goal is $25,000. Dollars raised on Giving Hearts Day through individual contributions and matching gifts will be used to fund a new staff position at the Club, a social and behavior service professional that will provide social support services to our club members. We are excited to provide these much needed services, free of charge, to our club members who are in need of additional supports and strategies for success.

As one of the only non-profit autism organizations located between Moorhead and Minneapolis, Empowering Kids is unique in offering high quality and affordable programming designed specifically for children with autism or social challenges, such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Our mission is to empower children, families, and the community by providing support and resources to those with autism or social challenges.

Empowering Kids strives to ensure that cost is not a barrier for families seeking assistance for their child. Our programming is a fraction of the cost of other autism programs, and we provide scholarships to help families in need. Currently, 59% of our families receive scholarships for services.

With a goal of $10,000, all donations received on Giving Hearts Day will go towards the Empowering Kids Scholarship Program. Giving Hearts Day funding will help us achieve our vision: to provide a life of hope, happiness, dignity, and purpose for individuals with autism or social challenges.
