The Boys & Girls Club of the Berkshires has received a $75,000 donation from Greylock Federal Credit Union to fund its Triple Play and Meals program. The donation will be made in $25,000 increments over three years.
Triple Play is a national health and wellness program challenging youth to be healthy and active by learning to eat nutritionally, to become physically fit, and to form positive social relationships.
The meals component will provide nutritious dinners five days a week at the Club's Light House Café. Staff and volunteers will work with youth to develop dinner etiquette and manners, and help foster substantive discussions during dinner. The donated funds from Greylock will help buy food for the program.
The Triple Play curriculum includes pre and post testing and will begin in September along with the meals component.
