WEST POINT, Miss. (WCBI)- The Boys and Girls Club of the Golden Triangle got a big boost to help it’s expansion efforts. Saturday the Mullen Family Foundation donated $25,000 to the non profit organization.
The donation will help the club expand into West Point. Currently, The Boys and Girls Club of the Golden Triangle operates two clubs. One in Columbus and the other in Starkville.
Megan Mullen says the donation was easy to make.
“The wildest thing about this relationship we have is I spent a week in West Point, Mississippi, covering a golf tournament at Old Waverly, two years before Dan and I ever moved here. I fell in love with this community, the people and I can tell you with certainty, we wouldn’t have been at Mississippi State for the last 9 years, if I hadn’t had that experience. So, after discussions about the needs in the Golden Triangle for Boys and Girls Club, she was like we need one in West Point. I said, you don’t have one in West Point already? She said no, and I said we are doing it today. We are doing it this week. Lets go. That’s why we are here today and that’s why this is so important,” said Mullen.
The $25,000 donation is one of the largest single donations the Boys and Girls Club of the Golden Triangle has ever received.
