The Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills has received a $5,000 grant from the Joy in Childhood Foundation, the charitable foundation supported by Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins, which is committed to providing moments of joy to sick and hungry kids.

The grant will support the Heathy Habits program, which puts an emphasis on eating smart and maintaining physical fitness. Specifically, this grant will help to increase the healthy, daily vegetable consumption and overall health and well-being of club members.

“We are proud to be part of the Joy in Childhood Foundation’s mission to provide joy to hungry kids by providing the resources they need in their daily lives,” said Fallon Brewington, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills. “This grant will enable us to further our own mission and the Healthy Habits program.”

“The Joy in Childhood Foundation is proud to support local organizations such as Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills that share our commitment to bringing joy to hungry kids and to helping them live healthier lives so that they can reach their full potential,” said Karen Raskopf, the foundation’s co-chair.

To date, the Joy in Childhood Foundation has awarded $23,000 to Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills to help address child hunger in southern Moore County.
