Following a successful fundraiser at The Peninsula in early February, the Great Futures Fund announced that the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oak Orchard and Milford will receive more than $75,000 in donations.

The Boys & Girls Club of Oak Orchard currently provides services for more than 100 children on a daily basis in their facility located on Oak Orchard Road in Millsboro.

With the Oak Orchard, Millsboro and Long Neck areas growing quickly, the need for more services at the Boys & Girls Club is apparent. Raising the $75,000 in donations from the Great Futures Gala in early February will provide much-needed funds for 2019 summer camp programs, scholarships and supplies. The long-term goal for the club, however, is an expansion of the existing facility in order to serve more local children and families.
