Description

For nearly 70 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue has navigated times of tragedy and crisis to provide safe places for kids and teens. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, BGCB has pivoted and expanded the ways in which we could meet the needs of our youth, families, and community. Since March 2020, the Club has provided nearly 50 weeks of full-day programming, with 90% of families receiving financial aid. This spring BGCB’s primary focus is on support for distance learning, wellness and mental health support, recreation, and daily breakfast and lunch. BGCB has 11 sites open for children and teens ensuring every child has equal access to resources, trusted mentors, and safe learning environments. We are committed doing whatever it takes to help kids, families and communities get through this crisis, but we can’t do it without your support.

On May 8, more than 200 households will gather virtually to celebrate, share stories, and raise critical funds to provide essential resources and support to our city’s most vulnerable youth through this crisis and help them emerge stronger.
