    In NFL Characters Unite, Ray meets 12-year-old Malachi, who, like Ray, lost his father to gun violence and has been experiencing verbal and physical abuse from bullies since he moved to Baltimore. Ray wants to help Malachi find the strength and courage to overcome the challenges he has faced and inspire him to focus instead on his passion for acting. Ray invites Malachi to be his special guest at his foundation's event that brings together thousands of kids in the Baltimore community to pledge support to stop and prevent bullying. At the rally, Ray shows Malachi that he is not alone and surprises him by introducing him to two actors -- Erik Martinez and Quinton Aaron, who played Baltimore Raven Michael Oher in "The Blind Side." Together, they will help give Malachi new opportunities to study acting in a safe environment and encourage him to Never Say Never to his dream.

    BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF METROPOLITAN BALTIMORE  PROVIDES FREE SHOES TO CHILDREN IN NEED THROUGH PAYLESS GIVES,™ SHOES 4 KIDS HOLIDAY GIVING PROGRAM.

    Baltimore, Maryland, December 13, 2013 — Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Baltimore is pleased to announce that we have been selected as an official partner of Payless GivesTM Shoes 4 Kids, an annual giving program from Payless ShoeSource. We are among 750 charitable agencies representing all 50 states in the United States, as well as Canada, Puerto Rico and 11 Latin American countries. Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Baltimore will be distributing merchandise certificates for children’s shoes to the families on our client list.

    The Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Baltimore is a committed community partner in helping to shape the lives of thousands of young children and youth through development programs and services with an emphasis on educational and prevention programming. The mission of the BGCMB is “To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens”.  "Thanks to the generosity of Payless Shoe Source, we are able to provide our young people with new, quality shoes this holiday season. We can't thank Payless enough for helping to make this special time of year even more special for our Club members” said Kenneth Darden, Executive Director of Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Baltimore.

    This is the sixth year of the Payless GivesTM Shoes 4 Kids program and the 2nd year that BGCMB has been selected. Although studies show that properly fitting shoes are important for children’s health and development, a striking number of children don’t own a pair of shoes that fit. We are working to remedy that here in the Baltimore metropolitan area.

    By helping families who struggle to provide their children with basic essentials on a daily basis, Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Baltimore, in partnering with the Payless GivesTM Shoes 4 Kids program, hopes to relieve some of the stress parents feel during the holidays and bring joy to as many children as possible.”

    For more information about the ways in which Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Baltimore is helping our community this holiday season, please visit our website at www.bgcmetrobaltimore.org  or call 410-637-3838.
