The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley has adjusted its programming to meet the needs of at-risk youth during the coronavirus crisis.
The local nonprofit released the following information, including how to donate to the organization:
On behalf of Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley members and families, thank you for your continued support “to inspire and enable all youth, especially those who need us must, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens”.
The important work of the Club has not stopped. Santa Clarita’s children and teens are more at-risk for risky behavior, unhealthy food and activity choices, and feelings of loneliness and isolation than ever. These are confusing, anxiety-filled, and uncertain times for all of us. Our young people need our support through this.
Since 1968, Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley has been supporting academic success, providing a second home, and building leaders. This work will continue! Services just look a little different during this time of uneasiness and uncertainty. Our Youth Development Professionals are quickly adapting and delivering impactful programming to engage Santa Clarita’s children and teens and help them through these tough times.
How the Club is adapting:
– Running Virtual Programming
– Engaging members through Zoom & Social Media @scvbgc
– Proactively reaching out to all club members and their families through phone calls, emails and texts
– Communicating with supporters, donors & volunteers
How you can help:
– Donate Amazon, Grocery, & Restaurant Gift Cards for Virtual Programming
– Assemble Easter Baskets for Club Members and Families\
– Donate Art Supply Kits for care package drop-offs (new and unopened)
– Provide Games and Supplies for curbside pick-up (new and unopened)
– Spread the Word! Forward to your Network
While the Club’s physical doors may be locked, your support means this important work can continue. These program changes have not been easy, and our Youth Development Professionals have been incredible at adapting. We have had to get creative with Club programming, and will continue to work towards maximizing the impact the Club has on the youth we serve.
