Day for Kops & Kids Scheduled for Boys & Girls Clubs of Volusia/Flagler Counties

Naming Ceremony of Edgewater Club to Jeep Beach/Edgewater Club to take place
immediately following Day for Kops & Kids


DeLand, FL, September 10, 2018 – Boys & Girls Clubs of Volusia/Flagler Counties is gearing up to celebrate its annual Day for Kops & Kids to highlight the critical needs of kids and teens in the community. Today, too many youth are facing serious issues that can deprive them of happy, healthy childhoods and in turn, negatively impact their futures. Local police officers will  be joining the Boys & Girls Clubs for a fun-filled day as a way to advocate for youth. 


In addition to Day for Kops & Kids, we will be having a celebration to rename the Edgewater Club as Jeep Beach/Edgewater Club.  Jeep Beach has been a tremendous supporter of Boys & Girls Clubs of Volusia/Flagler Counties.  Over the past seven years, they have donated over $400,000 to Club operations and sponsored many of our events including the State Youth of the Year trip, Honor Roll Banquet, and our kids Christmas party.


This year’s Day for Kops & Kids and Jeep Beach/Edgewater Club naming will be enjoyed by over 200 Boys & Girls Club kids, their parents, friends, several local law enforcement agencies, and our friends from Jeep Beach.

When: Saturday, September 15, 2018

Time:  10:00am – 12:00pm
