Boys & Girls Clubs of the Cedar Valley Supporter,

At Boys & Girls Clubs of the Cedar Valley our members, families, communities and staff are at our foremost concern and we have taken this interesting time day-by-day. The impact of Covid-19 on our community and world has us very thankful that we are still able to be serving not only our members, but our parents and our community. We have a goal to stay open as long as we are allowed to ensure that our members have a safe and stable place to be during this uneasy time.  

We also know we have a commitment to our donors whether that be through your time, treasures, or talents. We plan to keep you as up to date on our situation as we possibly can and we hope you will do the same with us. We want you to know that while you have been there for us throughout the years, we hope that we can return that favor now, if we can help you in anyway please let us know.

With that being said we have found ourself in a situation that is very unique:

  • All Day Programming with the closing of the public schools, we see it as our time to step up and provide all day programming for children who need a place to go while parents are at work.
  • Additional Cost The cost to remain open all day for an additional three weeks is at minimum around $15,000. This is not an expense that we could have planned for.

What can you do to help?

  • Give a Financial Gift This will help to cover the added payroll, utility, and supply costs that we are undertaking. Click here to donate --> DONATE
  • Provide supplies through Amazon Smile. We have created an Amazon Wish List for you to be able to purchase items that we are going to need to stay open all day. Make sure you also link your account to Boys & Girls Clubs of the Cedar Valley for additional give back. Here is the link --> LINK

We also would accept drop off donations of the following items at 515 Lime Street between the hours of 9am-5pm Monday-Friday:

  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Hand Soap
  • Paper Towels
  • General Cleaning Supplies

Sign up to be a Volunteer. During this time we are going to need volunteers who are willing to come in and assist our regular staff with the increased hours. To fill out a volunteer application click --> HERE

It is now more than ever that we need you as a supporter of the club to consider a gift to the Club of either your time, talents, or treasures to keep our doors open. We see this as our time to step up and support our community to the best of our ability through this unwavering time.

Thank you for your continued support!
