Thank you Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Staples and “Shake It Up’s” Bella Thorne for an incredible afternoon at our club. Bella visited with our Torch Club members as they gave her a tour of the club. Over 130 members eagerly greeted her and listened as she spoke to them about the importance of an education and giving back. She then signed our “Wall of Dreams” and passed out Staples for Students backpacks filled with school supplies.
Mr. Jose Resado, Manager of the Staples store in Monterey Park joined Bella to pass out the backpacks. Mr. Resado also happens to be alum from our club so he spoke about growing up in the club and that the kids should cherish their time here and remember to come back when they are successful adults. He also said they should look him up when they are old enough to work. He wants to hire young people from our community. It was a great way to start the Labor Day Weekend!
