You will see two regional youth organizations combining forces shortly. On Friday, the Boys & Girls Club of Door County announced that it would be merging with the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Green Bay on March 1. The merger will not cause any location closures or staff layoffs, according to the Clubs.
In a statement, Boys & Girls Club of Door County Board Chair Erich Pfiefer said, “While we believe strongly in the power of coming together, great care is being taken to ensure that both Clubs remain connected to their respective communities. We are committed to providing the same high-quality services that have been the hallmark of both organizations for decades.”
The merger will mean that over 3,000 youth and families will be served, making the combined clubs one of the largest youth development agencies in Northeastern Wisconsin. Each club will keep its name and branding for Door County and Green Bay.
