I thought I was better off dead...Then they slowly started winning me over. ...So while many people think of the programs and the buildings when they donate, I want you to donate because of the people.  I want you to donate so that the Boys & Girls Clubs of Stoneham & Wakefield will continue never to quit on the Ashleys, the Jacobs, the Nathans, and the Lilys.
