The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club of Greenville County annually serves more than 400 youth, many of whom are considered at-risk due to economic status, academic performance, factors at home and more. The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club is an affiliate of the National Boys and Girls Club of America. The Club’s trained staff and volunteers are devoted to helping these Greenville County children change their lives for the better and have done so since the Club began in 1938. National Boys and Girls Club Week encourages the local community to get involved with The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club to help make a difference by volunteering, advocating and donating.
