Boys and Girls Club Show Appreciation for Griffin Health Nurses
The Torch Club members of the Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley presented gift cards to Griffin Hospital nurses in appreciation for their dedicated service during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Torch Club is the Boys & Girls Club's middle school youth leadership program where members elect officers and work together to implement activities in four areas: Service to Club and community; education; health and fitness; and social recreation. All fundraisers and events are planned and implemented by the Torch Club members, as are the donation recipients.
This year, the Torch Club chose the Griffin Hospital nurses, understanding that as difficult as the COVID-19 pandemic has been for kids like them, it was even more challenging for those on the front lines in healthcare.
