The Boys & Girls Club of South Elgin is preparing to start construction of its new 20,000 sq. ft. clubhouse at the village’s former public works building. The $4.25 million project is expected to open later this year, providing daily education, meals, and activities for more than 250 children from kindergarten to eighth grade.
“The Boys & Girls Club of South Elgin is committed to enriching the lives of youth in the surrounding area through its range of programs and initiatives,” club CEO Cathy Russell, CEO said in a statement. “We see a need in South Elgin now more than ever.”
“South Elgin is home to over 4,000 hardworking families, many of which rely on public and private services and programs to support their wellbeing,” said Steve Super, Boys & Girls Club of South Elgin board member. “We are proud to welcome the Boys & Girls Club to South Elgin as the first major youth-focused non-profit in the village and look forward to enhancing the vibrancy of this great community.”
