The Boys and Girls Club of North Central Alabama highlighted its restoration project for the Third Street Unit on Thursday during its Community Impact Awards Banquet.

The club based in Decatur recognized donations received toward the restoration, including $50,000 from Lowe’s and $5,000 from Ascend Performance Materials.

The renovation project will fix items at the club's Third Street Unit such as broken windows, falling insulation, leaking roof, holes in the floor, peeling paint and aging heater and air systems.

The cost of repairs and improvements is estimated at nearly $350,000.

The 16,000-square-foot Third Street unit was built in 1964.

The banquet also recognized the club's Substance and Health Awareness and Resistance Program (SHARP) to help prevent opioid abuse. It was made possible by a $50,000 grant given by the Hartselle Christian Church trust fund.
