---- — SALEM — Throughout April, McKinnon’s Market of Salem will be offering their customers the opportunity to make a donation to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem. At the checkout, McKinnon’s cashiers will ask customers if they would like to donate a $1 or more to the club.
“Working together, communities and clubs can make a dramatic difference in the lives of our young people,” said Denise Dolloff, the club’s director of development. “We can give them the tools and support they need to graduate from high school and lead healthy lives. Our youth face risks in today’s world, but the Boys & Girls Clubs offer solutions.”
The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem offers affordable club membership to more than 2,000 youth annually; provides safe, fun and educational after-school activities for more than 300 children daily; offers affordable preschool programs for 80 children each week; and provides summer camp financial assistance to families.
McKinnon’s Market is a family owned and operated market with locations in Salem and Portsmouth, as well as Danvers and Everett, Mass. Since 1946, McKinnon’s Markets family strives to stay active in their surrounding communities.
With the recent increase in the needs of families and youth the club serves, officials and supporters ask residents to consider a donation at McKinnon’s Market, 236 North Broadway.
