On Thursday, June 8th, 2017, the Orange Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate Old Towne Orange’s first Boys & Girls Clubhouse. Paper Mart was honored to be a part of this special ceremony as a corporate sponsor.
Special guests at the ribbon cutting included Lakers legend AC Green. His remarkable NBA career included three championships and playing an NBA-record 1,192 consecutive games. In 1989, he established the A.C. Green Youth Foundation to help young people develop leadership skills. As a Boys & Girls Club alumnus, AC Green remains a proud supporter of the organization.
Members of the Orange City Council, including the Mayor of Orange, Teresa “Tita” Smith, were also present at the ceremony. Paper Mart President, Buffy Simoni and Marketing Director, Allison McGuire presented a donation check of $10,000 to the Orange Boys & Girls Club CEO, Tony Tripp.
Boys & Girls Club of America
Paper Mart greatly values the importance of local community support, especially towards the future generation. Boys & Girls Club of America has a mission to enable all youths, especially those who need it the most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. They provide a “world-class Club Experience” to help every young person who enters their doors. This includes staying on track for graduation, demonstrating good character as well as a healthy lifestyle.
