The donation was accepted by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Youngstown’s Jim Bird, CEO and executive director; Wanda Wellman, resource development and marketing director; Jacquetta Peoples, membership coordinator; and several children at the facility located at 2105 Oak Hill Ave.
“It’s really important that we support organizations like this,” Steve Rotunno, new-car manager at Greenwood’s Hubbard Chevrolet, said in a news release. “The Boys & Girls Club does so much to help kids right here in the Valley, so making a donation to support them was a no-brainer.”
Bird said his organization is “grateful” for the donation.
“Imagine my surprise when we got the call from Steve at Hubbard Chevrolet telling us that we were chosen as their year-end charity,” he said.
