The Milford Board of Aldermen voted to add money to one grant allocation during this year’s budget deliberations. Adding money to a Board of Finance-approved allocation doesn’t usually happen. Clearly, the aldermen agreed that the Boys & Girls Club of Milford was worthy of the addition. We agree. While there are many worthwhile and necessary nonprofit groups in Milford that receive some city funds, this club, which is relatively new, merits the extra consideration.
Not to be confused with Boys & Girls Village, which serves at-risk youth, the Boys & Girls Club of Milford is designed to provide youngsters a place to go after school.
