BENEFITING: Mountain Communities Boys And Girls Club
We are very excited to start another awesome year and start fundraising for our awesome summer program! Thank you for visiting our page - we hope you'll support us and our continued efforts to serve the kids and families of our mountain communities! For over 23 years, the Boys & Girls Club of Mountain Communities has provided a safe place for kids. The Club offers a range of programs to attract youth and give them a safe place to learn and have fun. In the summer, the Club provides a full day of academic and recreational activities at a fraction of the cost of most summer programs. Unfortunately we cannot afford programs at each of our four clubs for the summer. The parents and program staff have taken up the challenge of raising the money to keep all of our clubs open to serve all of the families that need us. The fees are just $10 per day for each child so that we can be available for the most kids possible. The cost is $2,000 per week for each Club. The clubs will be open from 7am to 6pm Monday through Friday. Our programs include academics, character-building, and health and recreation. Founded in 1995, the Clubs are located in the mountain communities of Crestline, Lake Arrowhead, Running Springs, and Valley of Enchantment making us available to all of the kids in the Rim School District. The Club provides the only low cost all day program for the children in our communities. Almost 40% of families in the area with children live below the poverty line, and almost 35% of households with children are single-parent, female-led homes. With parents working all day, many down the hill, their children face the prospect of being left alone in the home with no supervision or adult care. The Club has served generations of families in the mountain communities. We depend on generous donations and fundraising by people like you. Please support the important work of the Mountain Communities Boys & Girls Club by donating and/or fundraising today. Thank you!
