Summit Contracting Group is building an expansion and renovation for Baxter E. Luther Boys & Girls Club, formally known as the Woodland Acres Boys & Girls Club. The expansion will accommodate more programs and allow access for more children and teens. The construction will add to the existing structures to include new areas for sports, arts, and learning spaces.
“This expansion will help change the lives of an additional 100-150 children and teens,” says Paul Martinez, CEO/President of Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida. “We are grateful for everyone who has a role in this project.”
“We received a great response from our construction partners resulting in support covering nearly half the cost of the project,” says Nicole Padgett, Summit’s CAO. “The programs offered through the Boys and Girls Clubs are important for the kids who are Jacksonville’s future. We can’t imagine a better way to let them know the community cares about them, than to help improve the facilities where they learn and grow, and become part of the community as well. We are honored to work with them, and look forward to the completed expansion!”
