The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Kenai Peninsula would like to extend an enormous and heartfelt "thank you" to ConocoPhillips for many years of generous support and their recent investment in our organization with a $25,000 donation.
Over the last 20 years, ConocoPhillips has become one of only two of our Cornerstone leading supporters. They have graciously invested financial support over the decades, proving that they are willing to substantially invest in youth development programs in the Alaska communities where they operate.
Yet, ConocoPhillips support has not been strictly financial. Their employees have dedicated hundreds of hours volunteering their time to support the children of the Peninsula. ConocoPhillips employees have served as coaches and have mentored our youth through athletic and after-school programs. They have donated the use of their tents and barbecues. They have cooked and cleaned at our events. They have helped coordinate our fundraisers and children's events. In fact, our current board president and nearly 20-year board member is Peter Micciche; a ConocoPhillips employee.
ConocoPhillips' investment in our organization is an investment in the youth of the Peninsula. During these difficult times, it's great to know that we have a corporate partner that understands the importance of a safe, positive environment for our members. The $25,000 donation will help us serve over 5,000 youth in our six locations across the Kenai Peninsula, which includes the Kenai Clubhouse, Soldotna, Nikiski, Homer, Seward and the Kenai Teen Center.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Kenai Peninsula looks forward to continuing our remarkable relationship with this distinguished company well into the future. On behalf of all of the youth of the Peninsula, staff and our board of directors, "Thank You" ConocoPhillips, for your constant support of our mission of creating great futures for our youth. We hope you continue operating on the Kenai Peninsula for a very long time.
James A. Clark; Executive Director, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Kenai Peninsula
