Vance County Unit

Great Things Happening At The Vance Unit!

The Boys & Girls Clubs of North Central North Carolina are thrilled to have received the Lowe’s Renovation Across the Nation grant at our Vance County Club. With the Generous funding provided, along with the help of some wonderful volunteers from the our Local Lowe’s store in Henderson, we will be completing a number of projects in our Club. Projects include: New front doors, AC units, freshly painted games room and education room, new carpeting, window treatments, mulch four our playground and soundproofing for a new music studio. Many thanks to Lowe’s and our local volunteer for making these renovations possible!
