“Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana’s goal is to provide safe, empowering and fun places for kids during their out-of-school time. With a focus on providing opportunities to build Academic Success, Good Character and Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles for kids – our Board, staff, parents and youth are thrilled to be a recipient of the NBA All-Star 2021 Legacy Grant. This funding will help us refurbish the gymnasium of our Club located in Hammond, IN. This grant is one part of a larger renovation project of our Club to give kids in Hammond a modern, updated facility where they can engage in athletic, leadership and academic programs daily. We thank Indiana Sports Corp, NBA All-Star Committee and Board, Governor Holcomb and Mayor Hogsett for this partnership. This Legacy Grant will last longer than a day, longer than a year…but a lifetime for so many youth.” (Ryan Smiley, president and Chief Executive Officer, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana).

In addition, we will be able to boost our Environmental Education programming with new STEM initiatives, including a new interactive STEM Lab.” (Jennie Broady, Executive Director, Jameson Camp) (Source: www.indianasportscorp.org)
