Helping the Needy for Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Union County continues its tradition of supporting families in need with its Turkey & Trimmings Drive. Each year they provide nearly 200 hot meals to families who otherwise would not be able to enjoy the holiday. A donation of $25 buys a full Thanksgiving Dinner for these needy families. With the help and support of members of the community, the Boys & Girls Clubs can truly make a difference in a family’s life. Their website is: www.bgcuc.org/turkey-trimmings-drive-2. “With just a simple click you can help families have a wonderful Thanksgiving,” said Russell Triolo, CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Union County. “Every family should enjoy a hot meal and be surrounded by loved ones.”

Additionally, after school registration is now open for the Union, Elizabeth, Plainfield and Roselle Clubs at www.bgcuc.org or by phone, 908-687-2697. Aquatics, stroke development and water safety instruction is available at the Union Boys & Girls Club. Teen Leadership Club programs are available in Plainfield, Elizabeth and Union. Teen members participate in character, leadership, career preparation and community service activities throughout the year.
