Jeremiah Milbank (1887-1972) was a man of remarkable accomplishments as a businessman, financier and philanthropist. A lifelong believer in voluntarism, Jeremiah Milbank helped President Herbert Hoover develop the Boys & Girls Club national organization that provides support services for Clubs serving disadvantaged youth. He served as treasurer of the national organization for more than 25 years. Throughout his lifetime, Mr Milbank gave a fortune to help those in need yet he never sought monuments or memorials. He believed that wealth not used to help others was wealth wasted.
Volunteers make a tremendous difference in the lives of youth at Boys & Girls Clubs and are vital to the success of our programs and special events. Whether this is in form of a Homework Helper, Club Buddy, Program Facilitator, or Board Member, we are always happy to have help.
When the opportunity arose for both club locations to consolidate under one roof at the now closed Carver Elementary Campus, Club Staff were quick to enter into dialogue with Board Members and GISD Staff as to the benefits of this possibility. Not only would there be ample indoor and outdoor space for programming, but also the opportunity to prepare and serve after school meals for members in the commercial sized kitchen and spacious cafeteria. Recently both the Club Board of Directors and GISD Trustees approved the move meaning that on August 24th, 2015 club programming once again is under one roof.
