The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club of Durham Needs Your Donations!

We are in need of (new) toy donations to give our Boys & Girls Club Christmas gifts this year!

Durham PD Visits Boys & Girls Club

Three days a week, policemen and women from District 1 stop by our Boys & Girls Club to visit with our members. These visits include playing basketball, checkers, and just hanging out! Our goal with this program is to increase positive police interaction. Some of our Club members have never had positive experiences with police; they only see them on the news, or hear about them from friends/family.
