Wakeman Club's satellite programs get $25,000 grant

Wakeman Boys & Girls Club has received a $25,000 grant from the Fairfield County Community Foundation that will support programs at its McKinley School and Stratfield clubhouse satellites and at its Bridgeport clubhouse, the club said.

Wakeman officials said programs to be supported include an outreach program at McKinley that pairs teenage mentors with elementary students and after-school programs at the Stratfield and Bridgeport sites for children in grades 3 through 8.

Based in Southport, Wakeman Boys & Girls Club this year is marking its 100th anniversary.
