The club announced last week it was going to close the unit in southeast Bend at the end of the month.

 

It serves about 50 low income families in the Ariel Glen Apartments.  It was operating at a 75 thousand dollar deficit.

 

Terry Zink, the President and CEO of Bank of the Cascades reached out to the Boys and Girls Club and offered to help fund the program through the spring of 2013.

 

The Ariel Club's Director, Dan Shefler, says he's so grateful for the offer.  "I said, Am I dreaming?  I put a lot of time and effort into this club and my herat was brekaing.  I can't wait to see the kdis reaction.  They're gonna be going crazy so.

 

Parents like Kim Young who has three kids who attend the club was speechless. "I am shocked...  very, very, happy and pleased.  Wow!  It's going to be good  news for my kids."

 

Terry Zink with Bank of the Cascdes is challenging local leadership to pool together and find funding sources to keep the club's funding going beyond the spring of 2013.
