While our nation and world continue to deal with the ongoing COVID-19 Crisis, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Northland are finding ways to help support our youth and families.
So many amazing individuals, businesses and organizations have stepped forward to be part of the solution during these troubling times and the clubs feel strongly that we need to continue serving our youth and families despite being closed to traditional programming.
Boys & Girls Club staff started by preparing Care Packages before the clubs closed on Tuesday, March 17. Youth members were sent home with care packages that included food items such as cereal, noodles, vegetables, fruit and milk as well as personal care and hygiene items.
On Wednesday, March 18 staff started a calling tree to reach out to youth members and families to help keep them informed about resources at the club and the community.
Starting Monday, the Boys & Girls Club will begin to offer a grab-and-go dinner option for youth and families from its Lincoln Park site — and continuing until further notice or supplies last.
