MENASHA – The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley is looking to add a new location in Menasha.
A campaign is underway to raise funding for a new 25,000 square foot facility in the city.
Leaders with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley say they need to raise $6.2 million for the project.
“We’ve had plenty of conversations with some of the community leaders about the challenges that are facing that area of the Fox Cities and so this is an opportunity for us to do something really special and really important for that population,” said Greg Lemke-Rochon, Chief Professional Officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley.
There are seven Boys and Girls Clubs in the Fox Valley, but none of them are south of Highway 441 in the Menasha-Neenah area.
Organizers hope to break ground this fall and have the Menasha facility open by next summer.
