Sean “Diddy” Combs lent a hand to the Boys & Girls Club of Harlem in New York City by donating a significant amount of money to the organization’s operations budget, which has been under tremendous pressure due to enormous shifts in federal, state and private funding:
“Mr. Combs’ contribution comes at a time when we were faced with the possibility of eliminating existing programs and/or club sites. 100% of Mr. Combs’ contribution will go directly to the young people, and provide educational, recreational and social enrichment programs allowing us to move forward as a club, uninterrupted.” Willie C. Bentley, Jr. Board Member and Resource Development Chair. [Source]
The Boys & Girls Club of Harlem is a non-for-proft organization dedicated to youth development by providing access and opportunities for young people in their community regardless of economic, social and family circumstances.
