In this complicated world, the Boys & Girls Club is doing whatever it takes to help kids. Your gift is a simple way to make a difference!
This school year, Boys & Girls Club has expanded to serve kids before school, during hybrid & distance learning, & after school. We are partnering with our school districts to ensure that kids have wifi & devices, we are providing homework help & tutoring, & we are partnering with local colleges to bring education students into our learning centers to support our youth’s academic success.
We are currently serving about 650 youth daily.
Boys & Girls Club is making it simple for you to help feed kids during the pandemic. Nearly 100% of kids served by Boys & Girls Club are food insecure, & the need for an afternoon snack & dinner is critical. So, Club staff started a Grab & Go meal program for families at the Clubs, distributing 5,000 meals per week. We will continue to provide Grab & Go meals to kids in need throughout the pandemic.
The Club is making it simple for you to help youth stay connected when they can’t be here in person. Staff conduct Zoom meetings to play games & provide homework help, & they make phone calls to check up on youth. We even launched a Virtual Club, filled with videos, activities & challenges to keep kids active & busy at home.
Boys & Girls Club makes it simple for you to help critical workers. We are continuing to provide them with free childcare during hybrid & distance learning.
“It’s hard to have a job as a single mom with my son at home & make sure he gets his school work done. Thanks to the Boys & Girls Club, I didn’t have to worry about distance learning at all. I could focus on my job during the day & focus on Mikey after work. I don’t know what I would have done without the services the Boys & Girls Club is providing during COVID!”
