As Madison Council, we recognize that, COVID-19 is impacting low-income neighborhoods in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Manhattan where deaths and cases are disproportionatly higher. As a member of these communities, Madison Square Boys & Girls Club is responding to the crisis and continuing to serve members and their families. The Clubhouse doors may be temporarily closed, but the spirit of the Madison community is stronger than ever.
Madison’s mission to serve the most under-resourced areas of NYC has never been more critical. Your support is helping us to:
-Provide virtual afterschool programming which focuses on social & academic support, healthy lifestyles and arts & crafts.
-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.
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 $30,000 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.
Recognizing the financial hardships of our families, Madison only charges $5 a member per school year annually for membership – and no child is turned away. In the time of COVID-19,
