LETTERS: Children’s heroes

“It isn’t what you have in your pocket that makes you thankful, but what you have in your heart.” — Anonymous

Thankful for the heroes that work at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula.

During these trying times, they never missed a beat taking care of the children of essential workers.

I cannot imagine what would happen if we didn’t have these angels for our children.

As a past board member, I can tell you that everyone that works there is working there for the love of the children in our community, they truly care.

They make sure the children are fed, do their school work, they give positive feedback to the children, they are all so kind.

At the start of school they provide backpacks and school supplies which are usually donated the our local realtors, other organizations and many other amazing people in this great community we all call home.

This Christmas is difficult for many, the club will be buying them gift certificates.

I would like to extend a big thank you to our local heroes at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula.
