With great pride we are celebrating 80 years of service to the youth of Allentown, positively impacting thousands of kids’ lives. Since 1937, the Boys & Girls Club of Allentown (BGCA) has provided kids with a safe and nurturing place to go after school and during the summer months. All children who enter our doors are engaged in programs that encourage them to learn, grow, and develop life skills that prepare them to be productive, caring, and responsible adults in their communities. The past year was filled with so many great moments for our BGCA kids! Our programs and activities enhanced their education, health, and life skills. Some highlights:
· Make Your M.A.R.K., Imagination Station, and Literacy 4 R Youth greatly improved reading and math skills.
· Our S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program is growing and will be offered at all five of our sites this summer!
· Yoga, karate, flag football, basketball, kickball, swimming, keyboard lessons, knitting, arts & crafts, and many other programs helped our kids become well-rounded individuals.
In the year ahead, we will continue to enhance and grow our programs to make the BGCA experience even more impactful! Would you be willing to help us? Our Great Futures Annual Campaign is one of our key fundraising activities that help us achieve our mission of enabling all young people – especially those who need us most – to reach their full potential.
Your gift today will put our kids one step closer to achieving the great future they all deserve! Thanks in advance for your time and thoughtful consideration. Our kids really appreciate it!
