Special plans for Brookings Day of Giving at Boys & Girls Club

BROOKINGS – On Tuesday, Nov. 30, Boys & Girls Club of Brookings will participate in Day of Giving, put on by South Dakota Gives. 

Leading up to the 30th, the club will post staff memories, board appreciation, and different videos of its members talking about why you should support the Boys & Girls Club of Brookings. 

On Day of Giving, the club has a goal of raising $8,300 and will hold a competition between its board members and staff to see who can raise the most money to support youth club members and programs. 

Club members will also compete in a coin war as part of the Day of Giving event. Members can bring in change to compete between age groups and see who can raise the most money now through Monday, Nov. 29. The winning age group will get to choose a local non-profit to donate their earnings to.

There are three businesses that are matching donations to the Boys & Girls Club of Brookings on Day of Giving this year. Century 21 – Brookings Home Team is matching up to $150, Avera Medical Group Brookings is matching up to $250, and Central Bank is matching up to $1,000. Donations can be made online at givebutter.com/BrookingsDayOfGiving or you can text “brookings” to 605-692-3333. 

Any donation of $100 or more will receive two handmade hot cocoa bombs decorated by teen Club members and a limited edition Day of Giving button. 

All incentive prizes will be delivered by Saturday, Dec. 4.
