Today, May 5, 2020, is the day we can all come together and give back in all ways, no matter who or where we are. #GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity – in addition to the regularly scheduled Dec 1, 2020, #GivingTuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
Your gift today means...
Give the Gift of Connection: Close the Digital Divide Today!
In these uncertain times, we are seeing that not all distance learning is created equally. Low-income youth like our members face significant barriers to getting online. We are working to reach as many of our members as we can. With your support, we can make sure they have the tools they need!
Help our Members and Families Cook Through COVID!
Everyone is talking about it, from the New York Times to NPR: “At a scale not seen in over 50 years, America is cooking, a healthy move in the middle of a pandemic.” At our Club, the members have asked that we continue our popular cooking programs online but they need your help with the cookware and ingredients they need to follow along and make healthy meals for themselves and their families while they shelter-in-place.
Help us be Recovery Ready!
When this is over we will have a lot of work to do to get our members back on the path to Great Futures. Low-income kids like our members were already behind and we know that “students who struggle will likely struggle more online.” Help us provide free recovery child care for all of our families so that our members know they are supported even when things are hard.
Your giving provides countless opportunities:
$250 provides technology and program equipment needs for one child
$500 provides an annual Boys & Girls Club membership for 10 children
$1,000 provides one week of Summer Camp programming to one child
Donations made today will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $15,000 thanks to the generosity of the MPBGC Board members! We may be apart, but there is no day like today to come together to make Great Futures happen.
