Continued the capital initiative at our Louis and Gloria Flanzer Boys & Girls Club in Arcadia to renovate and expand the on-site gymnasium and turn it into additional learning and multi-use space. In 2021, we held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Phase II of the project, which was the completion of the Peace River Citrus Products, Inc. Health & Fitness Center. The project also entered Phase III, which is the expansion of the Club that will provide an additional 10,000 sq. ft. of educational and enrichment space to increase both capacity and impact.
Launched a capital project at our Irving & Marilyn Naiditch Campus, home of the Roy McBean Boys & Girls Club, which, when completed, will be a state-of-the-art, cradle-to-career site for the Newtown Community that will include early learning space, classrooms, enrichment areas, cafeteria, technology lab, dedicated teen space, vocational training center, commercial teaching kitchen and much, much more.
Began construction on the expansion of the Lee Wetherington Trade Partners Administrative Building. This expansion will provide modern meeting spaces, a collaborative work environment and will support organizational growth and capacity building. With additional space for key staff to oversee strategic initiatives, our organization will be primed to empower future generations of local youth to chart their path to success.
