Springfield Nonprofit To Benefit From National Award
An employee of Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield has won a national award—and money for the organization.
Unit director, Jeff Long, is the recipient of this year’s Maytag Dependable Leader Award, which recognizes club officials who are committed to making a difference in the lives of youth. It comes with a $20,000 financial grant for Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield. The money will be used to start a MemoryMaker photography program and for equipment for an existing photography program. Long started the BGCS Photography Club years ago.
