As we celebrate Memorial Day, Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Louisiana salutes the brave men and women who sacrificed everything to protect this nation in the name of freedom. Also at Boys & Girls Clubs we work daily to promote citizenship, good character, and leadership in our young people. We too thank those who served and gave their all to defend our freedoms.
Our mission to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens is one way we can and should continue to honor our military men and women for their sacrifices. This legacy of service with our commitment to building better communities and a better tomorrow for the youth who need us most is the essence of our existence.
As a movement, we at Boys & Girls Clubs are honored and humbled to maintain a strong connection with the U.S. Armed Services. Our partnership with the Department of Defense allows us the privilege of serving hundreds of thousands of children of military families in BGCA-affiliated Youth Centers on U.S. military installations across the globe, as well as in traditional Clubs across the nation.
As we take time with our families and loved ones this weekend, let us remember and salute those heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect us and future generations.
Wishing your family a Happy & Safe Memorial Day Weekend
