August 2019 - The Jaffarian Volvo Toyota Youth in Motion Fund is helping local teens and children fulfill their dreams of playing sports and attend camp with a $5,000 gift to the Greater Lawrence Boys and Girls Club. The Jaffarian Youth in Motion program was designed by Gary Jaffarian a number of years ago to inspire and enable children and teens who need us most and to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring people.

Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lawrence helps identify the needs of our young community members and allocates funds directly to support youth participation in sports and activities.

"I couldn't imagine what we would do without the support of Gary and this gift," shared Manny Ayala, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lawrence. "This fund enables our teens to receive sneakers to play basketball, our young people go to camp, among other important purchases that allow our kids to thrive in the sports and activities that they love."

The goals of the program, aside from providing the access to equipment, includes teaching sportsmanship and promoting physical, mental and emotional well-being. The Greater Lawrence Boys and Girls Club supports local youth to experience a sense of pride and accomplishment through the activities that lead the way in positively shaping the lives of young people.

Young people who have access to what they need, empowered to fulfill on their dreams have a different sparkle in their eye and spring in their step, Whether it be prescription swim or basketball goggles, football, basketball, field hockey or track equipment, equipment for the dance squad or cheerleading or summer camp - these important, and sometimes overlooked needs make a tremendous difference in the lives of young people.
