Response. Recovery. Resiliance.
As we are all adjusting to the changes in life due to Coronavirus, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Inland Valley hopes that you and your family are safe and healthy. Unfortunately, with extensive school and workplace closures due to the Coronavirus pandemic, our community is facing challenges unlike anything previously encountered. In this critical time, we remain committed to supporting our community’s kids and families, and we are currently providing Grab and Go meals for youth at our Perris,Menifee, and Quail Valley Clubhouses.
To support the public health, Boys & Girls Clubs of Inland Valley has postponed our major fundraisers and closed all Club operations. This means many of our revenue sources have stopped, but we still have bills coming in. We estimate a $15,000 loss per week for our organization.
Simply put, Boys & Girls Clubs of Inland Valley needs you now more than ever.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Inland Valley is committed to helping families weather this storm and providing kids with a sense of normalcy until the threat passes. For many families, the financial impact of Covid-19 will be significant. When we reopen our doors, they can trust that their kids will be safe and well-fed. For children and teens, this crisis will impact their academic progress and sense of safety. We will help them make up for lost time at school with fun and enriching educational programs under the guidance of our caring and trained Youth Development Professionals. And coming back to the Club will provide a safe and fun environment where they can get back to the important business of enjoying childhood. We look forward to a day in the near future when we again open our doors to Menifee & Perris youth. We know that a lot of us are feeling the financial impact during the time, but we are asking for your help if you are able. Please make a gift today to support youth and families in our local community during this crisis.
On behalf of the youth and families we serve every day at Boys & Girls Clubs of Inland Valley, we appreciate your consideration of this emergency funding request. These are uncharted times and we must be agile to respond to a rapidly changing reality. With your support, we can weather this storm, providing essential support for our community and the kids and teens who need us most.
