The Club receives donation from HomeStreet Bank

DAYTON–The local HomeStreet Bank has donated $3,000 to The Club for operating expenses.

Branch Manager Judi Pilcher presented a check to The Club Board of Directors President, Dan Butler. Pilcher is also a member of The Club's Board of Directors, and has been a strident, longtime supporter of The Club's programs.

The Club has become a vital venue for youngsters to congregate after school especially amidst the COVID pandemic. During the shutdowns and physical distancing restrictions, The Club has been able to remain in operation for the most part, serving up to 35 young people Monday through Friday. "Students are able to socially distance while at The Club," said Jim Pearson. "And, understanding the restriction has made an impact on how the staff practices and utilizing sanitation and safety protocols. They strictly adhere to deep cleaning the entire building after each session. It has become common practice now to wash hands often, wear a mask, maintain a fair distance from each other while engaging in The Club activities. Even how snacks are handled and served has changed. But we are doing it. Doing it all for the kids."

The Club will close for the Christmas Break December 21–January 3, and reopen on January 4.
