Boys and Girls Club asking for $30,000 donation match to Blaine clubhouse


An anonymous Blaine resident will match up to $30,000 in donations from fellow residents to the Blaine chapter of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Whatcom County (BGCWC) this holiday season. The donation match will end December 31.

The Blaine club provides meals and supports students with afterschool learning activities. 

“We are immensely grateful for the generous support of this gracious and long-term donor from Blaine. Her matching gift challenge will help ensure we can sustain our array of life-enhancing programs for kids in the Blaine community,” said Heather Powell, CEO of BGCWC, in a November 7 press release. 

The BGCWC was founded in 1946 with the goal of helping youth reach their full potential. The clubs accept children 5-18 years old for a yearly $40 membership. In addition to Blaine, Whatcom County clubs are located in Ferndale, Lynden and Bellingham.
