For 24 years, the Westminster Boy's and Girl's Club has provided latchkey kids a place to go after school. "Without this club the kids would be hanging on the corner, getting into trouble, joining a gang, or being home alone," said club president Marge Shillington. "This is some place for them to come, in a safe, supervised atmosphere." But as funding has dwindled and expenses have risen over the years, program organizers have been forced to make cuts just to stay open.

Grimy TV dinner trays. Sticky soda cans. Musty newspaper stacks and metal scraps. The products dumped at an Eastside recycling facility are looking really good for children at a local organization that is using the trash as cash in a new fund-raising program. Lt. Gov. Gray Davis joined about 60 community members to launch the "Recycling Hope" project at the Active Recycling Co. on Wednesday.

The Los Angeles City Council approved $150,000 Tuesday to help finance construction of a new headquarters for the East 60th Street Community Improvement Club, which has focused for nearly three decades on keeping at-risk youths off the streets. The money will give a much-needed boost to stalled efforts to raise $1.6 million for a building that will house a room for dance and martial arts instruction, a small library, a computer lab and an industrial kitchen for cooking classes.

The Boys & Girls Club of Buena Park, which serves more than 1,200 youths, will hold its biggest fund-raiser of the year Sunday. Club executive director Jean Morgan said the organization has been hit by recessionary times, forcing the nonprofit group to work harder at obtaining donations to pay for programs and operations. The club's operating budget is about $500,000 this year; about 25% comes from fund-raisers and special events, she said.

The board of directors of the Glendale Teen Support Center has asked the city for a $20,000 contribution toward a $100,000 fund needed to reopen the center. The City Council will consider the request on June 6 as part of a daylong budget review session. Don Sweetnam, board president, said the council should contribute to the center because it was the only facility of its kind in the city where youngsters could drop by after school to talk with one another and with counselors.
