The Jim and Cheryl Caldwell Foundation celebrated the opening of their fourth Project Phoenix Learning Center on October 26, 2012 at The Salvation Army ken Carlson Boys and Girls Club in Winston-Salem North, Carolina.
The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club has offered a positive place for the youth in Winston-Salem since 1938. The Clubs provide quality after-school and summer programs designed to enable all young people, especially those in need, to reach their full potential as productive, caring responsible citizens.

The Project Phoenix Learning Center includes 20 new laptop computers with Promethean ActivBoards, ActivSlates, ActivExpression, and specialized interactive instructional software. This collaboration with the Boys & Girls Club works as a natural bridge between school and home.
“We are blessed to be able to have a high caliber learning center for our boys and girls club members,” said Major James Allison, Area Commander for The Salvation Army of Winston-Salem.
