The Friendship Club is successful for many reasons: we have an amazing dedicated professional staff, we have enthusiastic and caring volunteers, we have a compassionate and collaborative board of directors and we have donors who believe that investing in the lives of our girls is an important part of creating a healthy community.
I would like to thank the business community in particular for their support over the years. Community focused businesses that sponsor The Friendship Club care about investing in the health and welfare of our children. Their contributions fund the day-to-day programs, keeping girls safe and nurtured in a loving environment, influenced by positive, life enhancing experiences.
Local businesses are key to the development of Friendship Club girls as future employees. Our girls, for the most part, stay in our community after high school graduation, attend Sierra College and work in the area. Some have left to attend college and are planning to return. We prepare our girls for this track by helping them hone their interview skills, build resumes, achieve financial literacy and ensure they have the opportunity to set short and long term education and career goals. As our girls are welcomed by local businesses to participate in community service, they are learning to give back and be responsible members of our community.
Thank you to the businesses that believe in the power of community and have invested in The Friendship Club. If you are not yet a business donor, please consider joining us as a business partner and contributing to the program excellence that fosters health and growth for some of our community’s most vulnerable young women.
