Who We Are
Founded in 1968 Don Moyer Boys & Girls Club officially became an affiliate member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America in October of that year.
In May of 1969, the Club purchased and moved into an old church building at 201 East Park, Champaign. A 1.45 million dollar renovation took place in 1994. The old structure was converted into a gymnasium, and an 11,000 square foot addition was built on the east side of the old building. The Champaign, Park Street location continues to be our main program site location. However, over the years the Club has also established other service sites in the community when appropriate.
