Video: Gloucester Boys and Girls Club Receives Much Needed Transportation
GLASSBORO, N.J. – A partnership between Kennedy Health and the Boys and Girls Club of Gloucester County is on the road to success. On Tuesday, the health center donated a van to the non-profit organization from its "STAT" medical transport subsidiary. The van will be used to transport teenagers back home from their after-school programs, which is often a problem for Boys and Girls Club officials, who say transportation is one of the barriers for teens to participate in their provided programs. "The program here, from what I've learned, is instrumental in the development of these young children. So, for Kennedy and 'STAT' to be able to donate this vehicle in order to help their purpose is a great thing," said Ronald Forsyth, the Executive Director at Kennedy Health. The three Boys and Girls Club after-school programs in Gloucester County run until 8 p.m., and now the new van will hopefully give more reasons for teens to participate and provide a safe ride home.
