The Alpena Boys and Girls Club has received a food/activity grant from Banner Realty.

The Club’s mission is “To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.”

In celebration of 30 years in business, Banner Realty, Margie Haaxma, Broker, is providing a grant that will assist in the need for delivered meals and resources. In 2020 there were over 18,000 meals and food resources supplied to individuals and families through the Alpena Club. The Club incurs a large expense each year to supplement the food program to over 1,200 youth and their families with both on-site and mobile meals. Besides food; extra resources such as activities and projects to help with education and entertain the children during COVID-19 are being distributed. The activity kits include family board games, schools supplies and educational tools and more.

Executive Director Brad Somers stated, “We are so appreciative and humbled by the Banner Realty’s teams support, I can’t tell you how grateful we are.”
