I have always supported Boys & Girls Club of America. When I was younger I spent many afternoons there. Truth is like many children, I don’t know where I would be without them. For more than 100 years, Boys & Girls Club of America has provided kids like myself with a safe haven and fun, highly engaging activities to help develop the creativity and confidence necessary to succeed in not only in school but in life! Through programs geared towards education, leadership development, arts and fitness, BGCA helps young people reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
With the back-to-school season now in full swing, preparations have begun at Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide for the influx of students throughout the year. To make sure all kids, especially those in need, are prepared for academic success this year, BGCA has launched the Tools for Back to School initiative . The campaign includes many activities for the public to support and ensure Clubs have adequate school supplies and materials.
Here is a few ways you can help support their efforts!
- TAKE A POP QUIZ: BGCA and Disney have launched a pop-quiz style game where supplies will be donated to BGCA for EVERY 5 correct answers scored to a club kid that needs them. So please make sure you head on over and do some of these simple fun quizzes today! The questions are super easy and fun and helps provide a child in need with school supplies! So please take 2 minutes out of your day to support the cause! In addition, the BGCA website features many educational resources and content, offering helpful ways for Moms and Dads to engage and support the organization.
- SHOP! When you visit Jcpenney in August, join jcp cares and round up your purchase to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs. I was so happy to see this! The other day I was in JCpenny’s buying Jada a book bag and a few other items the cashier ask if I would like to round my amount up. Of course I did! If everyone did this just think how much this would help! So if you are going to shop in Jcpenney’s this month anyways have the round up PLEASE!
- Donate any amount you wish directly on the site.
- Sign up to Volunteer at Boys & Girls Clubs and make a difference in the community
I really never ask anything from my readers, but today I am begging you to find it in your heart to at least do one of these to help support these kids, Even if it’s just taking the time to answer the pop quiz questions. If you do have a little extra to donate, even if it’s just $5 just do it. You will be helping a child in need in your community and will also get that warm happy feeling that you get when giving back!
