Mountaire Farms provided a $20,000 donation to help launch a fund-raising campaign to expand the Oak Orchard/Riverdale Boys and Girls Club in Delaware.
The club currently serves 100 children from the local area and has a waiting list of those who want to participate but are turned away.
The goal of the expansion plan is to build a gymnasium, more bathrooms and new classrooms to accommodate a teen program at the facility. Currently, the club only accepts children from Kindergarten through eighth grade. A preschool for 20 children operates a few miles away on Oak Orchard Road.
A fundraising event, the Great Futures Gala, to help kickoff the capital campaign for the expansion will be held Feb. 7 at The Peninsula Golf and Country Club, 32981 Peninsula Esplanade, Millsboro. For tickets or sponsorship information, visit greatfuturesfalade.com or call 945-3350.
The Great Futures Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation who mission is to support the safety, education and future of the youth in Delaware that need us most, through supporting the local Boys & Girls Club organizations and the work they do every day.
