Diddy Saves Boys & Girls Club Of Harlem
The Boys & Girls Club of Harlem will be able to continue providing access and opportunities for youth to reach their full potential as responsible members of the community due to the philanthropy of Sean Combs, founder of the entertainment conglomerate Bad Boy Entertainment Worldwide.
The local organization faced a shutdown due to dramatic changes in state budgets and private donations. Combs, has become a hero to his neighborhood for his generous donation which will keep the clubs doors open.
“Mr. Combs’ contribution comes at a time when we were faced with the possibility of eliminating existing programs and/or club sites. 100% of Mr. Combs’ contribution will go directly to the young people, and provide educational, recreational and social enrichment programs allowing us to move forward as a club, uninterrupted.” Willie C. Bentley, Jr. Board Member and Resource Development Chair.
The Boys & Girls Club will continue to be a safe place to spend time during non-school hours and the summer as an alternative to the streets or being home alone.These safe havens give children a chance to play, have fun, laugh and learn. For more information visit Boys & Girls Club.
