There are 15 chapters nationwide of Boys Team Charity, which helps foster a sense in boys to become socially responsible and build self-esteem, while strengthening family relationships. The boys also learn how to develop leadership skills and create new friendships.
On Saturday, the nonprofit will hold its biggest annual event -- the Paws In Need Valentine Crab Feed (which is a good excuse to celebrate Valentine's Day with your date a little early). All of the proceeds go to benefit their programs and ultimately to serve Tri-Valley pets in need.
