I can testify to the positive impact it has had on my life, and I'm looking forward to our company playing a role in helping to build the future of Boys & Girls Clubs."
Approximately 75 volunteers from the Choice Hotels corporate headquarters in Scottsdale are helping members of the Boys & Girls Clubs renovate the facility by painting, installing new furnishings and landscaping around the building.
The Piper branch serves approximately 200 youth daily, offering adult mentors and programs focusing on healthy lifestyles and academic success.
