Cherokee Nation donates funds to Chelsea Boys & Girls Club

TAHLEQUAH —

The Cherokee Nation donated nearly $5,000 to the Chelsea Boys & Girls Club last Thursday as part of a nearly $200,000 total donation to eight organizations in Indian Country.

“The Cherokee Nation is a proud and regular financial supporter of the mentoring work done at Indian Country Boys & Girls Clubs,” said Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker. “The benefit our youth acquire from these worthy organizations is significant. We owe our children, especially those who need it the most, an outlet and an opportunity where they can grow into their full potential as productive and responsible citizens.”

The funds help the afterschool programs continue character and leadership development among Cherokee youth. The Cherokee Nation has contributed more than $1.5 million to help the organizations with salaries, operation costs and materials since 2008.

The eight Boys & Girls Clubs within the Cherokee Nation’s jurisdiction serve 15,000 students, with Cherokee County alone serving 6,281 children.

Checks were awarded to the following organizations and enrollments:

• Adair County, (2,073 enrollment), $27,039.13

• Bartlesville, (808 enrollment), $10,539.13

• Chelsea, (380 enrollment), $4,956.52

• Cherokee County, (6,281 enrollment), $81,926.09
