Our priority is, and always will be, the safety and education of the youth we serve. During this time of school and Club closure, more than our duty, it is our privilege to provide critical assistance to our members that need it most.
Last year, we served over 12,000 youth in Tucson, many of whom depended on school and Club meals and snacks as their primary source of daily nutrition. We understand that each day that our Club is closed, is a day of uncertainty for many of our Club Kids and their families. In an effort to provide solutions during this time, every other Monday for the next 6 weeks, BGCT will be providing “Club On-the-Go Kits” at all 6 of our clubhouse locations.
BGCT “Club On-the-Go Kits” is a bi-weekly pickup program created to keep our Club kids engaged and parents informed. Each bag includes a weeks’ worth of themed academic activities and snacks, DIY projects, and supplies, resources for parents and more. Club On-the-Go is designed by our Program Directors and BGCT staff to align with core program areas and adapted for easy use at home.
We anticipate distributing up to 600 Club On-the-Go Kits in the weeks to follow. Putting together these kits is a monumental, unbudgeted project for our organization. However, we are certain that with your support, we will be able to continue this service as long as it is needed.
We are asking our Board, community and donors to accept this challenge and support those that are not making headlines, the kids at home who need a helping hand during this challenging situation. Dollars raised during this campaign will support our Club Kids and families at this critical time.
