Building Bridges to Brighter FUTURES

Campaign resources continue to go toward giving Grand Rapids youth the safest and best possible spaces to learn and grow – as well as the experiences, programs, and guidance to help prepare them for their futures.

“All of our campaign projects coalesce to help develop a generation of young people who are educated and job-ready, with strong values and great social skills, who will build a healthy workforce and a strong community,” said Chief Kevin Belk, co-chair of the campaign.

Thanks to the Building Bridges for Brighter Futures Campaign, we remodeled the state-of-the-art Paul I. Phillips Club in June 2012, and plan to renovate the Seidman and Steil Club.  We will also make extensive repairs to Camp O’Malley, our beloved summer camp located 20 miles outside of Grand Rapids.  Camp serves 583 youth each summer, during 5-day sessions, and employees over 15 teens and many Club alums.
