While we shelter in place, our Youth Developers have been hard at work to continue providing critical services to our members and their families during this time.
We are modeling the Mid-Pen BGC character traits of CARING, RESPONSIBLE, AND PRODUCTIVE:
Adjusting our partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank. Rather than the community coming to the DeLue clubhouse, our staff dropped off over 8,370 lbs of food to over 140 families in Daly City and San Mateo.
Keeping all 39 of our Youth Development Professionals employed and focused on serving our kids.
Contacting 400 families with personal phone calls.
Staffing the Bayshore School District’s Free Lunch Program to serve lunch to youth in the school district.
Giving out pantry staples - courtesy of Nob Hill Foods Redwood Shores - every Friday at the Dore Clubhouse.
Hosting online study groups with teen members so they can stay on top of their school work.
Participating in 390 hours of online professional development.
Cleaning our clubhouses so our kids have a spotless environment when they return.
How You Can Help
We can’t do this work alone. We need YOUR support to make sure our staff can: (1) continue to support our community virtually and through our food distribution activities, (2) prepare to support our kids who will need to catch up after being separated from their normal academic and social growth environments at our five clubhouses, and (3) purchase and deliver critical technology to those of our kids with the greatest need.
Please keep the Mid-Peninsula Boys & Girls Club in mind when thinking of ways to give back to your community. Make a donation that not only supports the kids and clubhouses in your community today but that brightens their possibilities for success tomorrow.
