Boys And Girls Club Holds Groundbreaking Ceremony

HAMPTON—The Boys and Girls Club of the Virginia Peninsula held a groundbreaking ceremony recently for the $2.5 million renovation of its Citizens Unit, located at 1815 Shell Rd.

The event was attended by Congressman Bobby Scott, Hampton Mayor Donnie Tuck, City Manager Mary Bunting and several other city officials. The project will include the construction of a new building as well as interior and exterior renovation of existing facilities.

Hal Smith, president and CEO of the Boys and Girls Clubs, said the new building would expand not only the club’s sports programs, but would also include a tutoring center, art and dance studios, and an area dedicated to STEM education. “This represents an investment in the community,” said Smith. “It’s so important for kids to have a place to learn and grow and form their futures.” The project is funded by the City of Hampton, the Tyrod Taylor Foundation, and an anonymous benefactor.
