Our contact information

Lenora has dreams for these boys that go far beyond what she has already been able to accomplish and contribute to their lives.  For the most part, activities have been funded by Lenora. Three years ago, she received a small grant and solicited donations from her friends. 


Wharton-Wesley United Methodist Church, where she has membership, has permitted The Boys’ Book Club to come under the mantel of their outreach ministries. The church affiliation permits tax deductible contributions to the club as well as tax-free expenditures on their behalf.
