The Boys & Girls Clubs of Gloucester County Paulsboro Center was selected by Boys & Girls Clubs of America to receive a Lowes “Renovation Across the Nation $50,000 grant. Since 2009, Lowe’s Charitable & Educational Foundation has partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to provide building / refurbishment grants to local Boys & Girls Clubs.
BGCA has enjoyed a great relationship with Lowe’s and have had many Clubs refurbished over the years through an annual grant selection process. In 2016, Lowe’s tripled the amount that they gave for renovations and refurbishments so that a Club in each and every U.S. state could receive a $50,000 Club refurbishment for a project of the Clubs choosing. The Renovation Across the Nation program allowed Lowes to identify a specific market in each state that they wished to make an investment. Once the market was identified, Lowes worked with BGCA to select a specific Club site for renovation based on critical need.
The Paulsboro Center was selected because of the commitment of our local partners and Board of Directors to invest over $400,000 in the Paulsboro Center over the past three years, explained Robert Taylor, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Gloucester County. The Lowes funds, coupled with funding from our local partner PBF Energy, and Board members John M. Paz, Ray Angelini RAI, and Jay Cipriani Builders enabled us to renovate the boys and girls bathrooms, the kitchen, and replace the roof and exterior front wall. The renovations to the building impacts 125 youth each day and helps to provide 30,000 meals and snacks to Paulsboro youth annually.
Gerald Hodges, Center Director for the past 9 years said “The kids and Staff are excited about the facility improvements”. It’s nice to have new bathrooms and Miss Mary our cook is thrilled with the added counter space.
