Boys & Girls Clubs of America
ICG is excited to announce that we will partner with our local Pulte team to support one of the many local Boys and Girls Clubs of Jacksonville in 2023. Pulte Group has partnered with the Boys and Girls Clubs of North America nationwide in each market they serve. This is a great opportunity for our ICG team to support the local youth in Building Great Futures together.
The Boys and Girls Club’s mission is a simple one; to reach out into the communities in which we serve to be a force for positive change.
The overarching message is to help students graduate from high school on time with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship and living a healthy lifestyle.
- In being introduced to the Boys and Girls Clubs I was astonished to find:
- 1 in 6 kids in the U.S. lives in poverty
- 7.7 million young people are alone and unsupervised after school
- In the last 50 years, childhood obesity has tripled
- 1 in 4 kids grow up without learning how to read, and those who are not on track by the 3rd grade are 4x likelier to drop out
For our first event supporting the local chapter, we were paired with we will be running a “Stuff the Bookbag” fundraiser starting in the coming months. More details will be announced in the coming weeks. Marcia Rosado and Deborah Self will be leading the way for ICG in connecting with our local chapter.
We will also connect our Orlando and SC offices with your local Pulte teammates/offices to offer each of you in markets outside of NorthEast Florida an opportunity to support the chapters we are paired with in your markets.
There are many Boys and Girls Clubs in the NorthEast Florida market that are all in need of outside support. The support they are looking for varies from club to club. Some examples of the support they are looking for are Mentoring, reading with the K-2nd grade club members, participating in enrichment activities, financial, and many more.
