The Sunnyside/Woodside Boys & Girls Club is a thriving organization with a dedicated Board of Directors and influential leaders who are all committed to creating a place to call home within our community. The club has kicked off with community blockbuster events and programming, both of which uncovered and confirmed the need for our services. We are creating a Community Center that will be the keystone of the Sunnyside/Woodside community. Our 3-year development plan includes an innovative Technology Center, Learning Center, Gymnasium & Recreational Center, Music & Performing Arts Center, and much more. The foundation of our center begins with the purchase of land and the construction a 90,000 square-foot multi-level establishment, which will include an underground parking lot and an outdoor playground. To join our team of community members and help us in our efforts, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
