Boys & Girls Clubs of Toledo expansion

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Toledo started off the year strong by opening clubs at McTigue Elementary School and Ottawa River Elementary School.  Annually, Boys & Girls Clubs serve about 5,000 members across the city, but despite those numbers, the need remains great across the region. “These new sites and a continued partnership with Toledo Public Schools will allow us to reach even more Toledo youth,” said Jim Ravas, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Toledo.   Visit for more details on these locations.

Grannie Thomas reopening

The Grannie Thomas Learning Center Building closed in early January due to a fire, but this unfortunate situation was turned into an opportunity to upgrade the curriculum and gather a whole new staff! Located at 201 Superior St. in Rossford, the new location’s ribbon cutting ceremony included open enrollment. Children were given the chance to get to know staff members, programming and enrollment opportunities.
