We want to give a big THANK YOU to Campbell Nelson Motors for all of their support over the last 9 months! One of the cornerstones of the Campbell Nelson business model is collaboration. Their Community Driven program provides support and partnership to several amazing local, regional and international organizations. BGCSC is privileged to partner with them.
Campbell Nelson has been a supporter of Boys & Girls Clubs over the years in a variety of ways. In 2013 the company decided to focus a unique program on six charities including the Alderwood and Edmonds Boys & Girls Clubs. Every time a customer purchased a new or used vehicle the dealership made a donation to the charity of the buyers choosing. They contributed $100,000 between February and October of 2013. Each time the Boys & Girls Club was designated the donation supported scholarships for two yearly memberships to the Boys & Girls Club. “The Campbell Nelson contributions toward club memberships allow the Alderwood and Edmonds Boys & Girls Clubs to continue to serve more kids regardless of their financial situation” says Mike Neumeister, BGCSC Area Director. Campbell Nelson contributed over $20,000 to the Alderwood and Edmonds Boys & Girls Clubs in 2013.
As the third generation of Campbell’s to own the dealership, Kurt Campbell and his brother Craig are passionate about supporting organizations and creating partnerships. To them it is all about making a positive difference in the community. “A blessing shared is the greatest blessing of all and that’s why at Campbell Nelson we look at being able to partner with charities as a win-win”-Kurt Campbell
Each time a customer selected the Alderwood or Edmonds Clubs, they received a hand-painted tile from one of the Club’s young artists and a handwritten thank you note with information about the organization. It is important to the Campbell’s that this program is really a partnership between Campbell Nelson, BGCSC and the customer. For BGCSC it has proven to be a great model for working with businesses in the community to address the needs of kids in our Clubs and in Snohomish County.
In October a group of kids at the South Everett Boys & Girls Club learned some very valuable lessons about good eating habits, based on the federal government’s My Plate national suggestions. Over a series of classes the kids learned how to identify everyday foods and group them into the following categories: fruits, grains, dairy, vegetables, and protein. They discovered the proper mealtime portions of each food group and they learned how to prepare a healthy plate. The final class project was to cook a dinner for the whole Club on November 1st. The series was taught by Derick Eldridge who grew up with a large family, and is used to cooking for a crowd. Read more

The Marysville Boys & Girls Club has been chosen to receive a grant from the Regal Entertainment Group which will allow our members to go see movies during the 2013 Regal Summer Movie Express. This program hosted by Marysville Regal Cinema 14, shows family friendly movies during the summer every Tuesday and Wednesday for only $1.00. The movies start June 25th and are open to the public as well. There will be two movies each day and it is first come first served.
The Marysville Club will be offering a shuttle to the movie each Tuesday for kids who are interested in going. We will leave the club at 9:30 am and be back later in the afternoon. A list of all movies playing will be posted on our website and on our Facebook page. Also during the rest of the week we will be doing activities themed around movies. There will be art projects, games, and other fun activities. Kids who participate in the Movie Shuttle will not have to pay any admission fee. If you wish to participate in the Movie Shuttle sign up the week before at the club.
