The Rotary Club of Salem has chosen the Boys and Girls Club for their 2023/2024 Good Works Large Grant.
The Boys and Girls Club of Salem, Marion and Polk Counties (The Club) will be receiving $75,000 in order to purchase commercial kitchen equipment at the Knudson, West Salem, Keizer, Swegle and Eastwood Clubhouses.
We are excited to be able to equip these locations with equipment that will be able to serve over 1,200 Salem-area youth who receive free, nutritious meals and snacks at The Club everyday afterschool and during the summer.
Over 83% of Club members qualify for free or reduced priced meals at school. Students may need breaks from the classroom, but they shouldn’t have to miss out on nutritious meals and snacks critical to their healthy development.
