West 7th Street Boys Club

Holiday Activities for 2023

Greetings to one and all and welcome to the 2023 Holiday Season for the Boys Club. Our first meeting will be Monday, November 20th at 6PM at Mancini’s. Our Christmas celebration will be Thursday, December 28th at 6PM. This year our party will be at Schmidt’s Rathskeller located at 882 West 7 th St. Please, write these dates down as there will be no more written notifications coming. You can make your donation at either meeting or mail it anytime.
However, early contributions help us with our planning for Thanksgiving and Christmas spending, number of families etc.
Once again, our mission is to assist working poor families, individuals, and seniors who are independent of any government assisted programs. We also help military personnel from our area or those that are stationed in our area. The club’s priority has always been to help those from the W 7 th area or have a connection to the avenue. We will help individuals and families outside the W 7 th area if they meet our criteria and funds are available. Our contacts for those we assist are first from our members, and then area schools and churches, the W 7 th Community Center, some of the area businesses, and our military connections. If you don’t know the family or individual you are recommending, and you received the names second hand, please save me the time and research them to make sure they meet our criteria.
Just a reminder, our club put in a provision a few years back to limit our assistance to individuals and families for no more than five years, as well as some other restrictions. Our purpose has always been to help those people who are trying to help themselves. Our club does not create an individual’s dependency on our help nor the expectation of assistance over a long period of time. Also, our organization does not have any “magic number” of families or individuals that we need to assist. As always, we will try to spend our money wisely adhering to our mission. There are a lot of good organizations that I’m sure need help in these rough times but our priority is finding area FAMILIES AND INDIVIDUALS.
Joe Fox says he will have 350 new bikes that will be given away on December 15th and 16 th . Dec. 15 th at the St. Paul RiverCentre between 6:30 – 9 P.M. We will need lots of volunteers for that event. So, if you are interested, give me a call and I will explain the evening’s activities.
Also, Friday Dec. 16, we will be delivering bikes that will be at my house. I will need volunteers to deliver them also. Call me if you can help out on this date.
Thanks to all of you for making this possible. Any questions, anytime, call me at 651-587-5355.
