Amplify Austin is stretching into it’s final hours, but there is still plenty of time to get behind a great organization with your support. Dennis Vera joined us in the studio to tell us about the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Austin Area. The mission of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Austin Area is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. Your support for Boys & Girls Clubs is more than charity. It is an investment in our most precious natural resource, our kids. With almost 68,000 kids living in poverty in Travis County, it is vital that Boys & Girls Clubs continue to reach more kids each year. By providing proven programs and services to the most vulnerable kids during the most critical times of the day, the Club keeps kids in a safe, productive, positive environment, providing each one hope and opportunity to have a great future. If you would like to help amplify the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Austin Area go to BGCAustin.org.
