Click here to watch our Campaign Video


The Police Activities League of Massena is the North Country’s leader in engaging kids, cops &
community. This year as we launch our annual giving campaign for “Our Kids, Our Community.” We have set a
one day giving goal of $10,000 with an overall annual campaign goal of $20,000. The campaign launches on
Tuesday, December 1st with a radiothon hosted by radio station Mix 96.1.

As a private, non-profit organization, we rely on diverse funding, including community support, to
provide the most productive and effective programs. PAL offers educational, recreational, arts and
technological programs, as well as providing a home away from home for youth. We strive to help all youth
reach their fullest potential. The end is realized by providing a safe environment in which to play, learn and
grow under the guidance of caring adult professionals, acting as positive role models and mentors. While
utilizing services of law enforcement officers and volunteers who offer supplemental support.
Supporting the Police Activities League of Massena is the best possible investment you can make in
one of the North Country’s greatest assets: our youth. It positively affects the Massena area, not only now,
but for decades to come.

We thank you in advance for whatever level of support you can provide – with every single penny
going directly to the Massena Club, to provide the programs, place and professional staff that make a
difference every day in the lives of the youth of our community!

Best Regards,
Zachary Monroe
Executive Director

An Investment in Our Future. Investing in Our Kids.
• Massena is not the retirement community people think it is. Almost one fourth of our
residents are under the age of 18.
• When do kids need the most support? Between 2 pm and 6:30 pm an increasing amount of kids
find themselves without adult care or supervision. Our young people need access to
responsible adults who care about them, especially during these critical hours.
• Kids are the future of a greater Massena. They grow into the people who get involved in our
community. They are our future employees, business owners and community leaders, and they
will make a difference in the lives of children yet to come. The kind of town we will have
tomorrow is taking root in the lives of our kids today.
• Helping low-income families expand opportunities for their kids makes sense and is especially
needed now. Over 25% of area kids come from families at or below the poverty level. The Club
gives kids of all economic backgrounds the place and programs to become great.
