Boys and Girls Club Needs Help to Earn Matching Grant

The Boys and Girls Club of Western Broome needs your help to secure a grant from Dick's Sporting Goods.
The Boys and Girls Club of Western Broome needs your help to secure a grant from Dick's Sporting Goods.

The club is one of 175 organizations that has been chosen to receive a Dick's Sports Matter matching grant for its gymnastics program.

Here's the catch, the Boys and Girls Club needs to raise more than $11,700 in order to get the same amount from Dick's. If it doesn't, it won't get any of the money.

The organization wants to buy a new tumble track for its gymnastics program.

"It helps the Boys and Girls Club keep the program going, buy this new piece of equipment so we can attract more people into the program, but also it helps us with our funding because we're always struggling for funding, so if it defrays the cost of coaches, we can use that in other areas," said executive director Rick Matarese.

You can log onto dsg.com/1127 where you can donate any amount towards the goal with your credit card.

If the Club doesn't raise the $11,700, your card won't be charged.

You can also track the fund-raising progress on that website.
