Salvation Army's After School Program Kicks Off

Posted: Updated:

DENISON, TX--Many Texas students started back this week, and those kids may be looking for things to do after class.

The Grayson County Salvation army has kicked off its after-school program. 

Students from the Denison School District can get picked up by the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club to get snacks, do homework and play games. Activities started Monday, but enrollment is still open.

"I grew up here, and I know how easy it is to go a different way, hang with the wrong crowd, get into trouble, just all around negative. This is something that's going to keep you focused--you can come in and have fun," Dale Rhodes said, Executive Director of the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club.

"We'd rather see the kids in our program and being involved with other kids instead of just going home," Don New said, Salvation Army Captain. "Maybe their parents are still working or they're home alone. It just gets them out of their home. It just gets them out of their home and into a structured environment."

For more information on fees and enrollment call the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club in Denison.
