Did you know that in the midst of the COVID-19 public health crisis, our Boys & Girls Club is still there for our community? Nearly overnight, our resilient staff team transformed its programs and built out a “virtual Clubhouse” offering a variety of ways to keep kids and families healthy, safe and engaged during the “safer at home” advisory. In addition, we have been connecting with community resources to meet the basic needs of our most vulnerable families.
However, the crisis has also dried up nearly all of our funding sources including childcare, facility rentals and three of our special events. When families get back to work in the coming months, they are going to rely on the Club more than ever before and we want to prepare as best we can to meet those needs. To do so, we need the support of our community!
While we can’t get together for this year’s Kick in for Kids 5K event, we are hoping you’ll still consider completing a 5K walk or run between May 3, 2020 and May 9, 2020 and making a donation to our Club.
