212 Gives Back 2020: Baker Youth Club

Dec 18, 2020 | 212 Articles, Community, Giving

2020 has brought more challenges than any of us would have ever anticipated. Now more than ever we must support each other—we must pour into our communities and stand by those in need. Every winter, each employee selects a local charity to support by donating a 212 Christmas bonus. May we all cultivate deeper levels of generosity, gratitude, and selflessness this holiday season.

Warsaw native Caroline Mayer has been involved with Baker Youth Club for eight years, and her appreciation for their work has only grown. Founded in the 1920s, the local non-profit has supported youth in our community for nearly a century.

“I have seen first-hand how important it is for the kids that go there and the opportunities that this facility creates,” shares the graphic designer. “A lot of these children may not have someone to go home to after school. Baker Youth Club provides after-school snacks and dinner as well as homework help, tutoring, and time for kids to be able to relax, play, and be around other children.”

“Baker Youth Club is focused on the next generation; they strive to shape young individuals to someday become independent, hard-working, and compassionate adults,” Caroline says of the charity’s mission. “They focus on Christian values—but even if people don’t believe, it’s so great for kids to be able to be in an environment that’s encouraging, fun, and safe.”
