General Mills gives $10k toward Walton County Boys & Girls Club

Funds will support Club’s summer programming 

General Mills is a company that strives to make food that people love and underneath their core purpose is a mission to “put people first.”

Recently, the company put the youth of Walton County first by awarding Walton County Boys & Girls Club with $10,000 to support its summer programming “Triple Play.”

Falling right in line with “treating the world with care,” General Mills gracious donation allows us to ensure that Triple Play will be in full operation this summer at our Club, shared WCBGC Senior Executive Club Director Monica Trimble.

“Triple Play is a dynamic wellness program that demonstrates how eating right, keeping fit and forming positive relationships add up to a healthy lifestyle,” Trimble explained.

The program, offered through Boys & Girls Clubs of America, focuses on the three following key areas: mind, body and soul, which promote healthy eating habits, fitness and good character.

"We are so grateful for the investment General Mills has made to our Club," she said. "Truly, Great Futures Start Together."

The Walton County Boys & Girls Club have been providing a positive place for boys, girls and teens for fifteen years in Walton County. The Club opened its doors March 11, 2002.

When school is out, the Club is in providing a safe place for youth ages 6 to 18 to explore programs focused on academic success, character, leadership development and healthy lifestyles. 

“Because of businesses like General Mills, we are able to continue to provide our youth with world class experiences that enrich and encourage brighter futures,” Bob Mackey, CEO & President of Boys & Girls Clubs of North Central Georgia said. “We are committed to nourishing the youth of Walton County with the tools and confidence to know they can become successful and productive citizens."

“General Mills has provided us a gift to continue this effort this summer in our Walton Club,” Mackey said.
