Kichler Lighting Supports Boys and Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio
Kichler Lighting is proud to support the Boys and Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio. In Fall 2022, the nonprofit unveiled the new gym floor and wheelchair accessible entrance ramps at the Steve Wise Club location in Akron, Ohio, both of which were made possible by donations from Kichler. Members of the Kichler team were present to celebrate the unveiling of the gym.
Other Kichler donations to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio have helped to purchase laptops and carts in support of essential online learning, helped purchase a transit van to bring kids to the Clubs and bring programming and services outside of Club walls, and are supporting a kitchen renovation at the Broadway Club location in order to expand its hot meals program.
The Boys & Girls Clubs provide safe, fun places for kids ages 6-18 to go after school and focus on academic achievement, healthy lifestyles and character development. The Steve Wise Club location welcomes 65+ children each day in grades K-7. Children are transported from local community learning centers and provided a snack, dinner, or pre-dinner to keep their energy up so they can focus on completing homework and participate to their fullest potential during their activities at the club. Team building, sportsmanship, patience, sharing, and positivity are some of the skills and development fostered through many planned programs.
