Boys and Girls Clubs closing

JACKSON — Boys and Girls Clubs in Canton, Bolton and Magnolia will be closing at the end of the year because of lack of funds.

Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Mississippi president and CEO Billy Redd said in a statement that he knows it will be a hardship for families.

Sunday’s Clarion Ledger reported Redd called the decision “difficult” and said it “had to be made.”

Redd says they are still trying to get long-term funding, but would have to get it by Dec. 31 to stay open.
