Today, kids and communities need Boys & Girls Clubs more than ever.
COVID-19 has swiftly spread across this country, creating fear, anxiety, and uncertainty for the kids and families we serve. Schools have had to close, and thousands of kids are left without meals. First responders, and essential personnel are left to make critical decisions about their childcare needs. But hope is not cancelled.
For 160 years, Boys & Girls Clubs have navigated times of tragedy and crisis to provide safe places for kids and teens. Today, we are committed more than ever, to ensure Club staff, members, families, and communities have the resources and support they need to navigate these uncertain times. Our Clubs will be vital to helping rebuild our communities and restore a sense of safety.
But we can't do this alone. Together, our impact is stronger!
The power of our impact is dependent on strong supporters; individuals, foundations, and community. Our Clubs have the ability to serve the needs of the community by providing safe places, support from caring mentors, and access to fun and educational programs. Although our operations have changed, we are still providing services and doing critical work.
Providing full-time care for children whose caregivers are first responders, health care professionals and essential personnel.
Providing meals to youth through local partnerships
Providing mentoring support
Supplying resources for virtual programming & more.
Through these services, hope is in action every day. Boys & Girls Clubs are resilient, and we will do whatever it takes to meet the needs of our community. Help us support the kids and families in our community today for a better tomorrow.
