August 2014 Giving Back: The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee

This month's cause: The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee


Giving Back Program | August recipient is the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Milwuakee

As we enter August and savor the last days of summer before the kids go back to school, we're giving back to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee.

Here's a little bit about the Boys & Girls Club:

Children have been coming to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee since 1887, when Annabell Cook Whitcomb transformed two basement rooms at Plymouth Church in downtown Milwaukee into a Club for boys.

Today, they are the oldest and largest youth-serving agency in the city. Everyday, thousands of Milwaukee's most disadvantaged youth stream through their doors and meet positive role models, feel safe and secure, and participate in life-changing programming.

Their mission is simple: to inspire and empower all young people, especially those who need them most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.

For more information about the organization, please visit boysgirlsclubs.org.

How our Giving Back Program works:

Each month, INK donates 10¢ of every single shirt that is sold through the site toward a monthly featured cause. Since October 2013, we have donated over $5,500.00 to various causes through our Giving Back Program.
