Board volunteers are integral to the success of Boys & Girls Clubs. They represent their Club like a flag represents a nation, saying to prospective supporters, "We believe in this Club and will be a careful steward of any contribution you might make." Board volunteers help Clubs secure the necessary resources to provide the kids of their community with life-changing programs and services. They keep an eye on the "big picture," making sure goals are met to ensure their Club's ongoing viability.
Boys & Girls Clubs of America is fortunate to have a guy like David George on our board. As a BGCA National Trustee and the president of Olive Garden, Dave continues the longtime support that Darden Restaurants and the Darden Foundation have traditionally extended to BGCA. But don't just take my word for it. Dave’s recent blog can tell you much better than I can how determined he is to help our kids achieve Great Futures.
