Boys and Girls Clubs
Kentucky REALTORS® and the Kentucky chapters of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America are joining forces so Kentucky’s kids continue to have a bright future.
As the premier youth-serving organization in the U.S., Boys & Girls Clubs have doors open to youth in communities across the country, serving as a “home away from home” for nearly 4 million kids each year during the critical time after school and in the summer.
Kentucky REALTORS® serves as “The Voice for Real Estate in Kentucky” and members help consumers make the American dream of homeownership a reality. Clubs and REALTORS® are part of the fabric of every community in America, and we are working together to give back and make a difference.
Kentucky REALTORS® Members
For many REALTORS®, community involvement is an important part of your business. You make an active investment in the creation and maintenance of a vibrant, safe community you work within and are proud to call home. Your local Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA) could use your support.
Back to School Supply Drive
Help support the BGCA by purchasing a backpack (or two) and other school supplies to help students across the state prepare for the back to school season in August.
Kentucky REALTORS® is asking members to fill a backpack or purchase supplies and drop off at the following locations:
- Local REALTOR® Association
- Local BGCA location
- Kentucky REALTORS® headquarters in Lexington
Members can also bring backpacks and school supplies to the Summer Business Meeting in June.
Day of Service: August 10
In addition to collecting supplies, REALTORS® across Kentucky are hosting a Day of Service on August 10 to help local BGCA locations across the state. Local REALTORS® will be visiting BGCA clubs to assist in preparations for the back to school season (times will vary at each chapter). Locations will have various projects going on based on the needs of the individual chapters. This is your chance to help an organization that serves over 28,000 kids in Kentucky each year.
