31st Annual Great Futures Gala

Andre Reed remembers joining the Boys & Girls Club of Allentown shortly after turning seven years old, “My two brothers and sister, we are all products of BGCA.  Our parents wanted us to get involved with an organization that really believes in you and takes the time to talk with you, and that’s exactly what BGCA did for me.”

Andre could be found at the Club nearly every day.  He credits the lessons learned at BGCA with guiding him through life, “My foundation started with the Boys and Girls Club of Allentown.  As soon as I walked through those blue doors I respected people.  The Boys & Girls Club gave me safety, stability, encouragement and confidence–everything I needed outside the house.  It opened me up.”

In fact, Andre went on to achieve a storied NFL career.
