For over 40 years, Boys & Girls Club of West San Gabriel Valley & Eastside have navigated times of tragedy and crisis to provide safe places for kids and teens. Today, we are committed more than ever, to ensure Club staff, members, families, and communities have the resources and support they need to navigate these uncertain times – while also partnering with state and local officials to do more.
COVID-19 has swiftly spread across this country, creating fear, anxiety, and uncertainty for the kids and families we serve. Schools have closed, and thousands of kids are left without a meal or snack to eat. But there is hope. We serve the needs of our communities by providing safe places, support from caring mentors, and access to fun and educational programs. Although our Club sites are temporarily closed, we are still providing services and doing critical work. With your help, Boys & Girls Clubs can continue doing whatever it takes for youth, families and communities. These services include:
• Distributing meals and essential supplies to kids
• Providing tutoring and age appropriate counseling support
• Supplying access to virtual programming
We are resilient, and we will do whatever it takes to meet the needs of kids and communities.
Grab-n-Go Meals are available as are virtual programs, the mob and tons more!
Club Updates: We will be posting all pertinent updates on the hours and operation of individual Clubs on our social media pages as soon as we are able. While we will make efforts to update our Facebook, and Instagram whenever possible, we encourage you to follow all of our pages and check them regularly to avoid missing any updates that may affect your family.
