WAKEFIELD — The Boys & Girls Club of Wakefield is hosting a “We Care Day” at the club on Saturday April 25, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Americal Civic Center lower level.
The club was awarded a mini-grant from the Wakefield Youth Action Team and will be conducting two events, which are community driven. The first event is a Tread-A-Thon, where participants will use the club’s treadmill for six hours and for every minute on the treadmill, a can of food or non-perishable item will be donated to the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry. Members of the clubs’ Keystone and Torch Club will be treading throughout the day.
The second event is part of the club’s anti-bullying program. The Boys & Girls Club will be having an anti-bullying Graffiti Wall, members are inviting townspeople to come to the club and speak out against bullying in our community by buying a brick on the wall. The cost for a brick is $1 and donations are welcomed. All of the money will be donated to the Wakefield Rotary Club as part of their campaign to “End Polio.” The Wakefield Rotary is the leader for this fight against Polio throughout the area.
The Boys & Girls Club is encouraging residents to attend the event, which will be a fun day for all and will give back to the community of Wakefield.
