Help us make the new Edmonds Boys & Girls Club a reality!
On 310 Sixth Ave North stands a 100-year-old brick-red building, the Edmonds Boys & Girls Club. Since the Club opened in 1968, it’s been a place of belonging, adventures, and academic support for over 80,000 youths.
Within its walls, kids have thrived with newfound confidence, skills, and friendships.
Heavily worn gym floors have experienced the thunder of aspiring athletes dribbling across the court and going for the win but supporting all the activities has taken its toll on the outdated building and updates are outpaced by the increasing need for space.
Imagine this: a leading-edge building with new amenities like a computer lab, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) Center, and more than doubling the current square footage and integrating the landscape of the redeveloped Civic Center Playfield.
The Boys & Girls Club of Snohomish County, led by Director Bill Tsoukalas alongside local business leaders Mike Echelbarger, Doug Dewar, Adam Cobb, Jim Morino, Mark McNaughton and Kelly Brewe, are spearheading a campaign to raise the needed $6 million to finalize this new reality.
Over $1 million has already been raised through private donations.
More than ever the importance of community has been felt by all of us, and this is a chance to get involved in creating something for the future of our neighborhood.
With every share on social media, every conversation about the project, and every gift of any amount, you will be empowering the youth of the future. Our collective momentum can get this leading-edge building closer to breaking ground.
Let’s do this for our Edmonds youth!
