MARLBOROUGH – The Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest (BGCMW) launched “A Boost For Youth” campaign last month, focusing on the unanticipated needs of youth following the COVID-19 pandemic.
Club members and the community are going to need Club resources more than ever before and this campaign is preparing to address those needs.
A Boost For Youth is focusing on reversing learning and language loss by
providing one-on-one tutors and group learning opportunities, restoring the feeling of safety for youth who are experiencing anxiety and uncertainty, and providing opportunities for FUN and letting kids be kids.
“Our Boost For Youth campaign is special because it supports the immediate needs of the youth we serve. While we have been connecting with our members throughout this closure, our staff are looking forward to seeing members back in our buildings very soon,” said Chris Duane, President & CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest. “Thank you to everyone who has supported the campaign thus far. We know that so many families are counting on us to reopen soon and we appreciate your support.”
“While much has changed over the past few weeks and months, the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest’s mission and commitment to serving local youth remains the same. There are more than 6,000 youth relying on BGCMW and they can’t do this without the support of the community. Plus your donation can make twice the impact,” said the organization in a press release.
Board members have banded together to match the first $10,000 raised through this campaign!
For every dollar donated, two dollars will go back to the Club, said the Board.
