RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Richmond finished a $20,000 renovation of the teen center on the southside.

The room was previously empty, but now it has an 85″ TV, arcade games, couches, computers, an art studio and more.

The teens got to see the room completed on Thursday.

“It’s really exciting. A lot of our teens have been here since they were elementary school students, so just giving them the opportunity to see that space refreshed, making them feel like they have a spot in the club,” club director Jade Tabb said.

This is the 52nd project nationwide that Aaron’s has done since 2015 as part of a partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs.
