Point Students Serve Boys and Girls Club of Chambers County

As part of a community impact project for an organizational leadership course at Point University led by Dr. Alan Kemper, 13 senior business students spent the fall semester fundraising for and volunteering at the Boys and Girls Club of Chambers County. The class project requires students to choose a local non-profit organization and orchestrate a fundraiser for that organization. This group of students chose to raise funds for the Boys and Girls Club after seeing the need for better drainage, as the Club’s building floods every time it rains.

“As Christians, it’s our duty to give back to those less fortunate,” said Ty Galliher, senior business administration major.

In addition to fundraising, members of the group visited the Club every week to do homework with the kids, lead activities, and play football outside.

“It’s been a pleasure having Point students here,” said Unit Director Kim Dozier. “The kids keep asking when the ‘big kids’ are coming back.”

The group project ended this past Monday, December 11, as they held a Christmas party in honor of the children—serving them dinner and delivering presents. They also presented a check with the funds they raised to the Boys and Girls Club, totaling more than $1,300.
