Bernadette Shanahan, executive director, boys & girls club of camden county
I am honored to once again say a HUGE Thank You to our Tools for Schools friends. Currently we serve nearly 1000 children and teens in Camden City and Camden County in our afterschool youth development program. Each day children and teens come to our Clubhouse for a safe place to LEARN, Grow and have FUN. Our Club Members come through our open doors everyday right after school – the most dangerous time in the life of a child. We open our doors in communities where children are most in need and offer them a chance to achieve academic success, learn to become good citizens of the world who lead healthy and fulfilling lives.

Just want to say a big thank you for the Tools for School program. I personally was able to hand out the backpacks to the children last year in need. What an amazing job you all are doing. The kids' faces lit up so bright when they saw their backpack. It was the sweetest thing ever. I wish you were here to see their faces. This year I will take pictures. Kellman Brown Academy is so happy we are participating in your amazing program again this summer. I know you will reach your goal this year. The Kellman Brown Community is behind you all the way. Thank you again for caring so much about our kids.
