That night everything changed.  My dad was given custody.  We moved states and my dad brought us to this Boys & Girls Club.  I hated it...I was in shock, I went from a dope house surrounded by druggies to a Club where every-one kept telling me they cared. But I thought nobody cared. I thought I was better off dead...Then they slowly started winning me over. ...So while many people think of the programs and the buildings when they donate, I want you to donate because of the people.  I want you to donate so that the Boys & Girls Clubs of Stoneham & Wakefield will continue never to quit on the Ashleys, the Jacobs, the Nathans, and the Lilys.

I never saw empathy from strangers until I came to the Clubs.  When my mom worked late, they let us stay later.  When I was sad, they asked what was wrong.  I went from a place where I didn’t want to hug anyone to a place where these strangers told me they cared.
