LANCASTER, Pa. - The Boys and Girls Club of Lancaster serves hundreds of kids a day. They are at capacity at their Hill Clubhouse on Water Street. Over the winter they will be closing to renovate the space.

The renovation project will include a state-of-the-art learning lab which will be used for a variety of programs for teens including homework tutoring, hip-hop dance classes and STEM programming.

The project was funded in part from a $50,000 seed grant from the S. Dale High Family Foundation and additional funding from the Clark Family Foundation and individual contributions from Club supporters in Lancaster such as the Suarez family, who own and operate five local McDonald’s franchises, including a restaurant one block from the Club on King Street.
