February’s WellSpring Asset Builder Award went to Allie Friese, Executive Director at the Boys and Girls Club of the Long Beach Peninsula. Friese has always shown commitment to youth programming since her service as Pacific County’s first AmeriCorps Member at the Teen Advocacy Coalition.
Her efforts span the entire county, from her roots in Raymond to her current work in the Long Beach area. Attendance at the Boys and Girls club has more than doubled in the last three years, while incorporating exciting new programs and expanding their reach. Recently, the Boys and Girls club announced that they would be organizing all youth sports on the peninsula.
Thank you for your hard work in our community Allie (past, present AND future)!
