​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​July 13 Is ALL About YOU!

Without you, more than 500 teens contemplating suicide might have gone without help last year.

More than 500,000 children could have gone without the care they need. And the lives of more than 2 million people could have been worse off.

In every respect, your support is helping change the way America cares for children and families. That’s why we’ve dedicated July 13 as Boys Town Donor Appreciation Day, a day to honor you as a loyal supporter of Boys Town’s Mission.

Thanks to your generosity and compassion, we are improving the futures of children who suffer abuse, addiction, abandonment or violence, so they can reach their full potential. Because you care, Boys Town is able to provide hope for the young man who has to dodge gunfire in his neighborhood just to get to school, healing for the family that is being torn apart by substance abuse and strength to the community that is crumbling due to neglect and social disorder. This hope, healing and strength is generated through Boys Town’s many life-changing programs and solutions that are grounded in our deep experience and supported by our decades of research.

Boys Town remains forever driven by the unique vision of Father Flanagan: that every child deserves a happy, healthy future, that every family deserve​s to stay together and that every community deserves to thrive. We strive to achieve these goals without regard to race, religion or cultural background, and we thank you for sharing in this vision.

Some Boys Town students wanted to share their messages of gratitude on this special day:
