PERHAM — Perham-area community members kicked off the week of Christmas with a monetary donation. On the morning of Monday, Dec. 19, Spherion, a local staffing agency that supports the lakes area, presented the Perham Boys and Girls Club with a $500 check.

"Really, since the (Spherion) program started in this area, we've been giving donations to the Boys and Girls Club of Perham," said Spherion's Brett Willett. "We see them as a valuable partner, not only for our company, but a lot of our employees use Boys and Girls Club as a resource in the area."

When they donate every year, they get to know exactly how the money is used in terms of improvements and assisting the local area. They enjoy getting to see those improvements and providing fun activities for area kids.

"Thank you very much to Spherion," said Cori Brown with the Boys and Girls Club. "They have supported us for several years, and we appreciate it very much." She made a point to say that every single dollar they receive helps in some way.
