The Boys and Girls Club of Central Virginia is got a big boost Tuesday when representatives from ACAC presented a $23,950 check to the club.
The donation came from a promotion the fitness center offered last month. The promotion allowed community members to access the area ACAC facility at a special deal of $25 for 25 days in September. The entire $25 fee went to the Boys and Girls Club.
Boys and Girls Club managers say the donation will provide both financial and program support.
James Pierce, the executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Central Virginia said, "We promote on-time graduation, healthy lifestyles and service to the community…these dollars will go directly to programs to support those outcomes."
ACAC managers say more people turned out for the promotion then they thought would, 958 people took advantage of the promotion and gave back to the community.
