Each month, the Bloomerang team visits one nonprofit customer to volunteer for a few hours at their facility. It’s our small way of giving back to the missions that our software users support – and a great team-building exercise for our own company culture.
This month, we visited Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville. The organization provides high-quality, low-cost programs for youth members ranging from elementary to middle-school to high school aged. Their sprawling club rests in the old Noblesville High School building and boasts a large gym, computer lab, teen area, art workshop, library and movie room. They serve, on average, anywhere between 100-350 kids per day, and even provide snacks daily and meals two nights a week.
The Bloomerang crew spent a few hours on site hanging out with the kids, playing some epic dodgeball, helping with homework in the library and coloring in the art room. It might have actually been more fun for us than for the kids, who were eager to have some additional attention! We were blown away by the amount of kids they serve and the quality of the activities in the building.
Providing these awesome services costs the club $330 per youth, while the annual cost to be a member is only $45 per youth. If there is a B&G Club in your community, consider supporting this organization through a donation or volunteer trip. Even a few hours of your time can make a big difference in the lives of these youth!
