Denzel Keeps Giving Back To The Boys And Girls Club

Malachi Haynes was named the Southwest Youth of the Year for the Boys and Girls Club of America, but he thinks that honour pales in comparison to sitting next to Denzel Washington. Haynes says he felt “probably 30 emotions all at once.” Washington is the group’s national spokesman and attended last week’s ceremony in Washington. He joined Boys and Girls Club when he was five-years-old. Washington says the things he remembers from his days at the club are “tough, tough love and keeping them busy.” He says the club kept him engaged, involved and busy, but he just thought he was having fun.
