Supporting Boys & Girls Club of America

“We were honored to join the celebration of recognizing Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s 2023-2024 National Youth of the Year”– Retired USMC Col Duncan Milne, President, Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services

Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services joined Command Council Members, Rick Freedman, his sister, Penny Freedman, and Carol Khoury, at the Boys & Girls Club of America 2023-2024 National Youth of the Year celebration at Cipriani South Street in New York City. We took the opportunity to advocate for ongoing integration of children touched by military service into community-based services. Boys & Girls Clubs of America is improving the lives of military families in civilian communities where the need is greatest. Along with being a Dixon Center Command Council Member, Rick Freedman is a Boys & Girls Club Board Member / Volunteer.  With Rick, Penny, and Carol we had the chance to network with military and community leaders to share ideas, and encourage community involvement leveraging national reach and local impact.Because military connected youth face unique challenges, we were honored to support Boys & Girls Clubs of America as they help them access specialized opportunities, cultivate lifelong friendships, and develop the necessary resilience to build great futures.
