Auto Insurance Co. Supports N.C. Boys and Girls Club

Children interactingThe John Avery Boys and Girls Club in Durham, N.C., is getting some financial help for the upcoming academic year’s after-school program.

GEICO has recently agreed to help fund the Project Learn program, which uses positive reinforcement techniques and interactive projects to help children learn and reach their full potential.

John Avery Boys and Girls Club executive director Sheila Ryba says that the program helps enrich children’s lives and is an investment in the community’s future. The University of Michigan asserts that after-school programs help children in a variety of ways, ranging from supervision to extra academic support.

GEICO Regional Vice President Joe Thomas notes that the company has partnered with the Boys and Girls Club in the past and is looking forward to contributing to the program’s work.

“GEICO’s had long-standing relationships with other Boys & Girls Club chapters, and we are excited to establish this new partnership,” said Thomas. “This chapter does outstanding work, and we’re glad that we can help contribute to the success they bring to the community.”

The John Avery Boys and Girls Club helps 600 children through their after-school and summer camp programs every year.
