The Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA) has provided kids with a safe environment for fun and friendships for over 100 years! It is an amazing program that provides activities to encourage artistic, athletic, educational and leadership development. I have volunteered with them in the past, and truly love everything this organization stands for. Actually, some of the friends that I used to volunteer with are still working for them today!
Since back-to-school season is here, I thought I would tell you about a few of the neat things going on with the Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA) and their partners!
The Boys and Girls Club of America (BGCA) have also partnered with JCPenney. How? Well the whole month of August you can join JCP cares by rounding up your store purchases at the register to benefit BGCA. This is a simple way to make a small (but meaningful) donation!
I encourage you – when you are out shopping for new school clothes, don’t forget to teach your children a little about what it means to give back to others in need.
BGCA, Disney and The Back-to-School Initiatives
Boys and Girls Club of America (BGCA) and Disney have partnered to launch the Tools for Back to School initiative. This initiative features a pop-quiz style game, where supplies are donated to BGCA for every correct answer you score! It’s a a quick and fun quiz where you can easily get the kids involved too (I took the quiz and scored 100%)!
I encourage you to play here and watch the donations roll in!
Resources and More
The BGCA website features a plethora of educational resources, news, happenings and content, offering many ways for parents to engage their children and support the organization. There are Tip sheets on the BCGA site and lots of other information on how the BGCA helps young people reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
More fun with BGCA! Mom Central will be holding a Boys and Girls Twitter Party on Thursday, August 23rd from 3-4 PM EST. There will be prizes and more! Don’t miss out on the fun!
Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Boys and Girls Club. I received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
