Boys & Girls Club hit hard by budget cuts

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. - Non-profit organizations in Greene County are being hit hard by recent budget cuts passed by Greene County Commissioners.

Last week the commission made large budget cuts in order to balance the county's budget.

A number of non-profit organizations will be affected by the cuts in the upcoming year.

The Boys & Girls Club of Greeneville and Greene County is bracing for the cuts; they will receive no funds this year for their organization.

"We provide a lot of services especially to the county more than two-thirds of our club live in the county. By them not wanting to fund the club, that's a shame for the children of Greene County that they are not willing to back them that way," said Scott Bullington, the executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Greeneville and Greene County.

In years past, the commission has budgeted $12,250 for the club.

14 organizations in Greene County will receive not funding for 2013-2014.
