ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - The Boys and Girls Clubs of Southwest Virginia celebrated 25 years of being in the Roanoke Valley as part of Giving Tuesday.

The organization hosted a movie premiere at the Grandin Theatre in Roanoke Tuesday afternoon and evening. Impressions: 25 Years of Inspiring Local Youth features dozens of stories from past and current club members, community partners and board members.

The director of development explained how the donations go directly to after-school programs.

“[It goes to] that care for kids, so that parents can go to work and really take care of their family and know that their kids are in a safe place with caring mentors and quality programming where they’re being productive during those hours,” Emily Pinkerton said. “We can’t do that without community support.”

If you weren’t able to make it to the showtimes Tuesday, you can still donate and become a partner with the Boys & Girls Clubs.
