"The Union Street Boys & Girls Club provides a supportive environment for Manchester teens to achieve their goals and grow into leaders in their community," said John Robinson, CEO of Aaron's, Inc. "Aaron's is proud to continue to work alongside the Boys & Girls Clubs of America to provide the necessary resources and technology that will instill and foster confidence in these teens."
In 2015, the Aaron's Foundation, Inc. announced a three-year, $5 million national partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America's Keystone Program, helping teens develop their character and leadership skills in hopes of helping them reach their potential and creating positive change in the community. Keystone Club teen centers provide members ages 14-18 an environment in which to plan and participate in activities that focus on community service, academic success, career preparation, and teen outreach.
"The Manchester teens who participate in Boys & Girls Club programs are given the confidence necessary to achieve success in the future," said Diane Fitzpatrick, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Manchester. "The support Aaron's has provided through the new state-of-the-art technology, furniture and appliances will help us further our mission and help our teens grow into confident, successful young adults."
