Boys and Girls Club of AC receives kitchen donation

Posted: Updated:

It's been a long road to recovery following Hurricane Sandy but with the help of Art Handlers Appliance Center, the Boys and Girls Club of Atlantic City is ready to serve the community once again.

It's a donation that's cooking up a recipe of success for the Boys and Girls club of Atlantic City – Sovereign Avenue location.

The club that reopened this week is still picking up the pieces from Hurricane Sandy after floodwater destroyed almost everything inside of their building, including all of their kitchen appliances.

"We had four feet of water in here, and it floated the old appliances," said David Ross, who is with the Boys and Girls Club of America. "They were all over the place."

But Art Handlers Appliance Center hopes a hefty contribution is just the ingredient that the organization needs to get their kitchen back in working order to provide all of their visitors with a home cooked meal.

"It's not about the money, they needed a refrigerator, a washer and a microwave. You just do it, some things you can't put a price on. You just do what you can, when you can," said Art Handlers Co-Owner, Scot Sacks.

In addition to providing a hot meal to all of the kids the new kitchen appliances will be used as a learning tool to teach them how to cook, as well as how to live a healthy lifestyle.

Mayor Lorenzo Langford says helping keep these kids off the streets is getting Atlantic City one-step closer to a full recovery from the storm.

"Our character is we get knocked down, but we get don't get knocked out. We get up."
