Boys & Girls Club improves safety with donation from Clearwater Paper | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey

The Boys & Girls Club of Cleveland County will have a safer facility thanks to a donation from Clearwater Paper.

The Boys & Girls Club recently received $62,000 from the company to build fences, new doors and keypads and increased safety measures in case of an active shooter scenario.

During a recent, self-initiated safety audit, the Boys & Girls Club discovered opportunities to improve on its child safety practices. Representatives from Clearwater Paper Corporation met with club staff to develop a speedy response that would not require a reallocation of the club’s operating funds.

As a part of the enhancements to the Sumter Street facility in Shelby, new fencing will be erected around all outdoor areas not currently enclosed. This will increase the size of play spaces and make sure unauthorized individuals and stray animals do not have access to children. It will also provide an extra layer of security to prevent a child from leaving the premises without permission if they attempt to do so. Fencing added to the side of the facility will redirect foot traffic away from the street and busy parking areas to allow children to exit the rear of the building into a secure playground.
