DULUTH, MN -- A big gift Thursday for a local non-profit dedicated to improving kids' lives and mental health.
The Rotary of Duluth Club 25 presented a $25,000 check to the Boys and Girls Club of the Northland.
The money will help bolster their mental health access program.
Organizers say those services are more important for kids now than ever before.
"We're seeing a great population of youth that just aren't getting that follow up, aren't getting that one-on-one contact that they need, Tammy Sundbom, Resource and Development Director for the Boys and Girls Club of the Northland, said. "So by bringing those services right there, we're able to help treat or deal with a wide range of mental health issues."
The funding is part of a three-year grant from the Rotary Club.
The pandemic forced the organization to move this year's fundraising online.
