Hi Friends & Family,
As some of you know, I am a member of the Madison Council, a group of dedicated people that volunteer and raise money for the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club. COVID-19 is impacting low-income neighborhoods in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Manhattan where deaths and cases are disproportionately affected. The club provides a safe, fun, stable and positive place for kids to go after-school and during the summers. COVID-19 has put a hault on the services Madison provides and I'm hoping you can help.
Madison’s mission to serve the most under-resourced areas of NYC has never been more critical. Your support will help us to:
-Provide virtual afterschool programming which focuses on social & academic support and has expanded to include arts & crafts and healthy lifestyles.
-Assist families with challenges such as limited home internet access and lack of devices.
-Serve as an information hub for our Madison community by directing members and their families to food and other resources as needed.
As Madison’s programming continues to evolve during this time, Madison Council is stepping up to own a part of the response to this crisis and help during this time of need. We are committing to raise $20,000 to support Madison’s COVID-19 response efforts and make sure that when the Clubhouse doors reopen, we are ready to welcome our kids back.
We are so appreciative of your support!
