Palmen Supports the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha
Palmen Automotive Group has been a proud supporter of the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha for some time. This is because the crew at Palmen truly believes in doing good in the community. Palmen Auto Stores employ local employees from the Kenosha area, so supporting programs within the community just makes sense. And there aren’t too many programs within the community that do more positive things than the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha. The club is actually the largest provider of youth sports as well as cultural and educational opportunities in the Kenosha area. The current membership in the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha is almost 8,000 – which includes children and some adults from all walks of life in the community. But such a great organization needs assistance to keep its doors open – which is why Palmen Automotive Group was happy to help.
Why It Makes a Difference
Children are our future. That statement gets used a lot in the world today. But that’s probably because it is so true. Unfortunately, there are a lot of activities out there that aren’t exactly healthy for our youth to be getting involved in. But when there aren’t alternatives, idle time can have negative results. That’s where the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha comes in with financial support from business like Palmen Automotive Group. The Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha offers programs and activities that have the power to enrich children’s lives. And at the very least, the programs can be used to provide worthwhile activities other than some negative hobbies that children can pick up.
The programs have proven results with youth. In fact, 85% of Boys & Girls Club alumni nationwide say that the club helped teach them right from wrong. With an approximate 15.1 million children in the country going unsupervised on a daily basis, understanding the concept of right from wrong is paramount for a quality community environment.
While backers like Palmen Automotive Group are essential to the success of the Boys & Girls Club, the many programs that are provided also require volunteers. Some areas of need at all times for the club include mentoring, tutoring and coaching. Think you have what it takes to make a difference in the lives of children in the Kenosha community?

Something for Everyone in the Community
The number of sports and activities offered at the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha are truly too many to list. Football, baseball, cheer, softball and wrestling are just a few of the sports offered. But it goes much deeper than sports, as the Boys & Girls Club also offers after school programs and non-school day programs. Because of this, children in the Kenosha area always have somewhere to go and something to do that is constructive.
