BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF RUSH COUNTY

Lasting Impact

Since 1943, the Boys and Girls Club of Rush County has been serving the needs of our community's youth. Most adults know us as the place where kids come to have fun.

Our purpose is not simply to provide an after-school hang out, but to assist parents and schools in transforming our most valuable asset, our kids, into productive, responsible, and caring citizens. We offer activies programs in our three Priority Outcome Areas:

Healthy Lifestyles

Academic Success

Good Character & Citizenship

CHANGING FOOTPRINTS

One Step at a Time

Changing Footprints realizes the great need for shoes around the world as protection from diseases and a gateway to education. Because of that need we collect new and gently used shoes for distribution to homeless, disaster-stricken, or underprivileged people locally, nationally, and internationally regardless of race, religion, gender, or ethnicity. We operate from warehouses located in Rushville and Indianapolis, Indiana as a nonprofit, registered 501(c)3 organization, founded in 2005. As our reputation has grown, we have had the pleasure of working with many social service agencies, church missions, medical relief teams, military personnel, and disaster relief teams, requesting shoes for their missions. We never lose sight of our mission since we work personally with teams who actually take the shoes and see that they reach those in need.

M.O.R.E. FOR KIDS

Changing perspectives. Changing lives.

M.o.R.E. for Kids operates under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people and our volunteers.


Formerly known as Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Rush County, we have used the knowledge and resources of BBBS of America and tailored it to specifically fit our community and our kids.
