INVISTA donates $10,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of Victoria
Funding supports campaign to add new teen center
INVISTA has donated $10,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of Victoria (BGCV) campaign to improve the gymnasium area and add a new teen center with computer homework stations, a teen lounge, and a weight training room.
“INVISTA is pleased to support the BGCV’s plan to renovate the gymnasium space and add a new teen center,” said Kevin Burke, INVISTA Victoria site manager. “Through its focus on the enablement of youth including character development, healthy lifestyle choices, and education, BGCV provides an important service and support to the young people of our community.”
The INVISTA donation is part of the BGCV’s $200,000 gym renovations and teen center campaign announced earlier this year. The initial phase includes the installation of air conditioning for the more than 13,000 square feet of total gym space and the placement of new modular flooring throughout the gym. The teen center will incorporate approximately 7,000 square feet of undeveloped areas within the confines of the gym and will include a teen lounge, homework stations, restrooms, and a weight room.
"The Victoria Boys and Girls Club sincerely appreciates INVISTA’s generous support,” said BGCV Executive Director Marc Hinojosa. “A teen presence has been visibly absent at BGCV for several years. Our hope is that the attraction of an upgraded gym and a dedicated teen space will go a long way in bringing teens back to the club, and advancing our goal to provide programs for young people, ages 6 to 18.”
