Game on—in style! The Jaffarian Volvo Toyota “Youth in Motion” fund has made a donation of $5,000 to the Lawrence Boys and Girls Club for the purchase of sneakers and other sports program equipment, the River Street dealership headed by Gary Jaffarian tells WHAV.

The donation provides vital equipment for the Club, according to Executive Director Manny Ayala. “This fund enables our teens to receive sneakers to play basketball, our young people go to camp, among other important purchases that allow our kids to thrive in the sports and activities that they love.”

One participant in the program, a 15-year-old named John, shared that he was grateful for his new sneakers, “that help me improve my basketball skills — they have a great grip which allows me to move confidently on the court.”

Other sports equipment provided through the program includes prescription swim and basketball goggles, football, track and cheerleading equipment, Jaffarian said.
