Generous Donation Makes Mar Vista Boys & Girls Club A Reality

MAR VISTA GARDENS (CBSLA.com) — A lot of elbow grease and a lot of community support has paid off as a Boys & Girls Club, four years in the making, is set to open in Mar Vista Gardens.

Jack and Cindy Jones took a tour of the brand new youth center named in their honor after their $1 million donation.

“It’s unbelievable to actually see that this is the day that the doors are open,” Cindy Jones said.

Officials from the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Monica and the Los Angeles Housing Authority took part in the ribbon cutting for the grand opening.

The club includes an art shop, education center, teen center, gym and a technology center and a game room.

“This building is going to be filled with kids, having fun,” Cindy Jones said. “When kids smile, it lights up a room.”
