Plans Begin At My Kid’s Club Community Facility

SELMA – My Kid’s Club (MKC), a Johnston County non-profit providing services for local youth, is set to move forward with the early stages of construction of its new facility on N Pollock Street in Selma. The organization lost its home to Hurricane Matthew in 2016 and has nearly completed an impressive $3 million capital campaign dating back to early 2020.

A small construction crew will be onsite this week to address preliminary site work on the property, with the bulk of the construction scheduled to begin in early 2022.

My Kid’s Club has been running the club from a local elementary school campus since the previous facility was destroyed.

MKC’s plans call for a new 5,000 square foot building on the original site that is adjacent to Selma Elementary School on N Pollock Street. The new facility will help MKC increase its capacity for county-wide youth participation, serve as a central hub of operations for club activities, and support virtual learning and satellite programming at several other site locations.

After school programs and summer camps provided by My Kid’s Club lay the foundation for youth to grow through opportunities for academic success with an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) fields of study, civic engagement, and promoting healthy living habits to achieve their potential as responsible and caring citizens.

My Kid’s Club Executive Director, Sarah Sheraski, said she expects construction to start in the first quarter of 2022 with a grand opening scheduled for late 2022. “We are so grateful to Selma Elementary for allowing us to operate out of their facilities the past few years, but we are ready for the organization’s next chapter and to have our own building that this community can call home.”
