Community donations help Boys & Girls Club

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB)-- With the help of several local donors, the Boys and Girls Club in Northwest Gainesville has undergone some improvements.

Thanks to several local donors, including Lowe's, Scorpio and Ashley Furniture Home Store, students at the Boys & Girls Club have updated facilities to enjoy.

From new floors to new doors and even fresh paint on the walls the interior of the building has made a complete transformation from before.

Executive Director Shane Johnson said this is great progress, but there's still much work to be done.

In 2019 the Club plans to use leftover funds combined with funds they hope to raise to move into the next and final phases of renovation.

Johnson said the Rotary of Gainesville Foundation deserves recognition for being the catalyst for the project and was the primary donor for the project.
