I am pleased to announce we will be re-opening the Daniels-Mardak Boys & Girls Club this fall! The re-opening is made possible thanks to a generous gift from two of our most committed and loyal donors, Keith Mardak and Mary Vandenberg, the same individuals who made a significant gift to first open the Club 13 years ago. Boys & Girls Clubs and Holy Redeemer have signed a new lease, which keeps the Club open for the next seven years and provides additional space for Club programming.
We have invested in building enhancement and remodeling projects that will improve the teen center, games room and the pals’ room for our 4 to 8 year old members. In addition, we will welcome back some of our former Daniels-Mardak staff members while also hiring a few new staff members to join the team.
The Daniels-Mardak Boys & Girls Club will re-open in two phases. Families who are enrolled in childcare through Wisconsin Shares can begin attending the Club on Monday, October 2nd. Daniels-Mardak will officially open to all families on Monday, October 9th. Club operating hours will be Monday through Friday from 2:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. In preparation for the re-opening, Daniels-Mardak employees will host daily office hours starting Thursday, September 28th from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. to answer questions from parents and assist with the registration process. We ask those families enrolled in Wisconsin Shares to please call 1-888-947-6583 to update Daniels-Mardak as your preferred childcare provider. Daniels-Mardak’s provider number is 4000573254 and location number is 006. Families who are interested in determining their eligibility for Wisconsin Shares can call Sara Martinez at 414-763-1244.
We understand the temporary closing of the Daniels-Mardak Boys & Girls Club has been difficult for families, and we apologize for the stress and inconvenience this situation has caused. It is our privilege to continue serving the families who have come to count on us, and we hope to see your child’s smiling face back in programming at the Daniels-Mardak Boys & Girls Club very soon!
