Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana

SOUTH HAVEN - The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana has just received one of it's biggest and most valuable donations it has ever gotten thus-far.

It has been given nearly two acres of land that is adjacent to the South Haven Boys & Girls Club on what is now the north end of the Club’s property.  The donation came from Indiana American Water.  According to a news release from the Boys & Girls Clubs, the lot is valued at more than $130,000.

Today:   We talk with Ryan Smiley, the CEO of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana about the start of a major capital enhancement and renovation project for the 100th anniversary of the historic Katherine House in East Chicago's Harbor Neighborhood.  The project already has major financial support and commitments needed, to makeover the building on Deodar Street into a more modern facility that will benefit East Chicago children and their families.
