Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year Giving Tuesday is on November 29.
We are thrilled to be
participating in this giving event through the Community Foundation for
Northeast Michigan, and hope you will support The Boys and Girls Club of Alpena
by making a donation! The services we provide to our local area are vital to
our community, and on November 29 there is potential to create a huge amount of
support for our organization in a 24-hour period.
How can you help? Visit
