Get Organized Project (inside)

We need some organizing assistance. We have received some incredible donations during this time of need but we need some help creating an organized closet for our Club Directors and Staff to easily find the items they need. With a structured environment to find our supplies this will assist in knowing what supplies we have and what supplies we need to help our members be successful.

If this is something you love to do please feel free to reach out to Jerika Henderson by email at JerikaHenderson@bgctopeka.org to schedule a time.
