Thanks to our partners and participants, we have achieved great success since launching our energy and water efficiency pilot program with Boys & Girls of America in 2013. Today, over $1,000,000 in funding has been awarded to 22 Club facilities in the Southeast and Midwest. Early results indicate the potential for year-over year utility savings of up to 25 percent. We have also partnered with Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization and their member-network of food banks.
