I want talk about clubhouse by Ashley Goforth

The clubhouse is place that help others in need with drugs,  alcohol, and eating habits. Also they do fund raisers help people in need. We do karaoke and we volunteer for things and we help for education and jobs. We have bus to pick up people and we have community needs and we do scrap booking and we answer phone calls. My favorite is help others and answer phone and do the fun  raiser!
