The Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket is able to provide life-changing and life-saving services to the youth in our community because of the support of the community.
While members pay a nominal fee for membership at the Club, that doesn’t even come close to covering the expenses of providing them with programs (approximately $600 per child annually).
The support of the community-at-large is vital to our ability to maintain the high-caliber programs for which we are known. We always seek to provide our corporate partners with recognition for their contribution to our programs; part of that recognition comes through our Homers for Kids program.
Homers for Kids
Twice a year – once in April and then again in August, Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket supporters gather at McCoy Stadium, home of the Pawtucket Red Sox, to celebrate their contributions to our Club.
Homers for Kids provides area businesses and corporations with the opportunity to make an investment in the incredible youth development programs offered at the Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket, while also receiving public recognition for their contributions.
For more than two decades, the Pawtucket Red Sox have partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket as the supporting partner of Homers for Kids. Bringing public recognition to campaign donors, the Pawtucket Red Sox list donor names on the jumbo screen at McCoy Stadium before both kick-off and wrap-up games as well as providing general admission tickets to all donors so they can show their support for both the Club and their hometown team. Major donors are also invited to attend an on-field recognition ceremony at both the Homers for Kids kick-off and wrap-up games.
