Creating Great Futures Together

On November 2, 2019 a $3.5 million campaign was announced.  The campaign goal is to establish an inter-generational Boys & Girls Club within the former Festival Foods Building on Holmen Drive.  This opportunity will strengthen the community as a whole.

Centrally located with adjacent parking this 40,000 square foot Boys & Girls Club facility will include but is not limited to:

-Youth Activities such as:  Academics & Fine Arts, Character and Leadership Development, Healthy Lifestyles, Mentoring & Tutoring

-Inter-generational Programs such as:  Nutrition/Exercise, Adult Education, Recreation Leisure Activities, Family Programming

-Gatherings, Activity and Meeting Spaces

The Momentum is Building

At the November 2nd Kickoff Event, it was announced that $2 Million has already been committed toward our goal.

This is an exciting time to be a part of the community.  We need everyone’s help to make this dream come true.

How the money will be used?

Campaign proceeds will be used to support the development of the Club and the community center, contribute to the cost of renovations of the building and to provide for the first three years of programming expenses for all programs.

The Need is Real

The northern La Crosse County corridor is the second fast population growth area in the state.  A safe and welcoming space for the residents of the area is vital.

For youth – According to La Crosse County, the most dangerous time for youth is between 3 and 7 pm.  Even though Holmen is the largest school in the Mississippi Conference it is the only one that does not have a dedicated space for after-school activities and learning support, putting many kids at risk.

For retirees – Similarly, people of retirement age do not have a center for socialization, medical and nutritional support, and many other needs.

The Facility

Here is a preliminary concept:
