This is it. The start of something big. REALLY BIG!
After all, how many organizations get to celebrate 100 years of service?
First Things First
Throughout our history, Boys Town employees have been the key to successfully carrying out our mission of saving children, healing families and strengthening communities. So it was fitting that we launched the beginning of our 100th year with a special employee appreciation event for all our sites around the country. Josh Temple, star of various HGTV and DIY Network shows, has worked with Boys Town before on several projects, and he graciously agreed to help honor our thousands of employees.
So, a few weeks ago, all of our sites from New York to California and everywhere in between took a few minutes to reflect on Boys Town’s journey and the hard work of everyone who is helping change the way America cares for kids and families. (Josh sure looked like he was having a great time. We’re pretty sure you could see his smile from the back of the room.)
But now it’s time to put our heads down and get back to work …
We Need Your Help!
One of our goals during our 100th year is to let you and everyone around the country know that Boys Town Kids and Families Are Everywhere. They’re teachers and police officers. They’re bank tellers and artists. They’re the family down the street. They are the people you want to have as neighbors, co-workers and friends.
Please help us celebrate these kids and families who have triumphed over difficult, sometimes heartbreaking circumstances. We want to blanket the country with stories and images of Boys Town alumni and spread a message of hope to everyone who needs it.
You can help by learning more about our kids and families, and helping spread the word. Whether you change your Facebook profile picture, share our materials with friends and family, or make a donation, you have our gratitude. It’s only with your help that we can continue changing the way America cares for kids and families.
Please make sure to use #BoysTown100 when sharing images/stories on social media.
